Police say they’ve laid a charge through the province’s Smoke-Free Places Act.
They say a Guysborough District RCMP officer was doing traffic enforcement in Halfway Cove when he stopped a speeding vehicle in June.
RCMP say the driver was smoking a cigar with a 13-year-old passenger in the vehicle.
They say he was belligerent, refused to put out the cigar, and keep smoking.
