'Unsafe' driving puts Dryden man in trouble

A 35-year-old Dryden man was charged with two offences Thursday night after Thunder Bay provincial police stopped a sport utility vehicle near the city.
Police said officers encountered the accused in Dawson Township around 10:30 p.m. after they observed a SUV being driven in an unsafe manner on Highway 11-17.
According to a provincial news release, officers believed the accused was impaired. He was arrested and transported to Thunder Bay’s OPP detachment for tests.
John-Michel Bottomley was charged with failing or refusing to provide a breath sample and driving a vehicle or a boat with cannabis readily available, the news release said.
Bottomley, who has been released from custody, is to appear in Thunder Bay court on Aug. 28, the release said.
None of the charges have been proven in court.
