Puslinch man wearing no pants charged in collision

GUELPH – A Puslinch man faces charges after a driver wearing no pants rear-ended another car here last Thursday.

Guelph Police officials say officers were called to Downey Road near the Hanlon Expressway on Dec. 8 at about 9:45 am.

“The caller was reporting a two-vehicle collision and advised one of the drivers was not wearing pants,” police stated in a press release.

“Officers arrived and noted one driver was wearing a hooded sweatshirt on his legs. He also had a cigarette the wrong way in his mouth, with the filtered end facing outwards. Officers spoke to him and noted he was showing signs of impairment, including slurred speech and an inability to focus on the conversation.”

Police say the man was transported to a police station to be assessed by a trained drug evaluation expert.

“It was determined his ability to operate a motor vehicle was impaired by drugs,” police stated.

“Witnesses at the scene reported prior to the collision the male was driving so quickly the front wheels of his pickup left the road while driving over speed humps.”

A 43-year-old Puslinch man was charged with impaired driving and dangerous driving. His driver’s licence was suspended for 90 days and his vehicle was impounded for seven days. He is to appear in a Guelph court on Dec. 22.
