KELOWNA - Kelowna RCMP say a local man is facing possible charges after being investigated three times in a week for impaired driving.

Kelowna RCMP spokesman Const. Jesse O’Donaghey said in a press release they first stopped the 53-year-old Kelowna man May 9, who was given a 90-day roadside suspension.

Police further allege the man provided a breath sample over the legal limit when stopped again by police on May 13 and again May 16 at a local gas station.

O’Donaghey said the man was arrested without incident and held in custody until his initial court appearance.
