Through investigation, it was determined that the driver of the motor vehicle had been impaired by drugs. The driver was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to the Thunder Bay OPP Detachment for further testing.

As a result, Morgan DUMONSKI-HASKELL, 29-years-old, of Nipigon, has been arrested and charged under the Criminal Code with Operation While Impaired – Blood Drug Concentration.
