The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary laid several charges against a 43-year-old man Saturday, including driving while impaired.
Police had received several calls from the public about a vehicle being driven recklessly in St. John's by a person who was possibly drunk behind the wheel.
At 5:20 p.m., RNC officers stopped the driver on Thorburn Road and charged him with impaired driving, refusing the breathalyzer and driving while prohibited.
He was held in police custody awaiting a court appearance.
The matter remains under investigation.
