PENTICTON - An impaired Penticton driver will hopefully use a bit more discretion next time nature calls and he’s driving under the influence.

Penticton RCMP received a call from a Penticton resident on Thursday, Feb.25, at 4:55 p.m. The caller saw the driver of an Econoline van at Skaha Lake Road and Sudbury Avenue stop on the roadside, drop his pants and urinate in front of the caller and his wife. 

Police located the vehicle and stopped it on Main Street near Boston Pizza.

The driver was found to be intoxicated, in addition to having a driving prohibition and no valid insurance.

He also had a stolen validation tag on the vehicle.

The man was handed a three-day driving prohibition, an appearance notice for court, in addition to a violation ticket for $598 for no insurance, and a second violation ticket for having open liquor in the vehicle.

He also had his vehicle towed.
