Police say they made two impaired driving-related arrests following a single-vehicle crash in Richmond Co.
RCMP say officers were called to a crash in the Potlotek First Nation at roughly 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
They say they found an impaired man trying to get the vehicle out of the ditch, and residents told them it was actually another man who put it off the road.
Police say they took both men into custody; they were held and released.
One faces a pair of drunk-driving related charges, while the second faces one count of impaired driving and a count of refusing the breathalyzer.
They're scheduled to appear in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court to enter a plea in Dec. 3.
