RCMP nabbed a suspected impaired driver at a wildfire checkstop in the Williams Lake area last night.

Police say a 35-year old Fort St. John man was stopped at a checkpoint at McLeese Lake and Beaver Road just after 8 o’clock.

He was taken into custody and is alleged to have provided breath samples of twice the legal limit.

RCMP say he has since been released on a promise to appear in court in mid September.
