A Brandon man is facing impaired driving charges after originally being pulled over for speeding on January 19.
RCMP say John Blaikie, 66, was travelling eastbound on Highway 1 in the RM of Whitehead when he was pulled over shortly after 4 p.m. Three passengers were in the vehicle at the time.
Breath samples later showed the driver to be above the legal limit.
Blaikie will appear in Brandon court on March 3.
