Police follow impaired driver to his home
A 47-year-old Chatham man is facing a drunk driving charge after he allegedly led police right to his residence while they were trying to pull him over.
CK police said their investigation started just after 12:31 a.m. Thursday morning when they saw a vehicle on Park Avenue West in Chatham that was "driving erratically."
Police said they tried to pull the driver over, but he kept going until he arrived at his home.
The officer who spoke to the man believed he was under the influence of alcohol, so he was arrested and taken back to police headquarters for some breath tests.
The man then allegedly refused to provide a suitable breath sample.
He was charged with flight from police, impaired driving, and refusing to comply with a breath demand before he was released with conditions and a future court date.
