A 43-year-old St. Clair Township man discovered that failing to provide a breath sample at a an OPP R.I.D.E. (Reduc Impaired Driving Everywhere) stop is in itself an offence.
The checkpoint was held early Friday morning on Plank Road at Brigden.
When police stopped a Dodge pickup truck, a conversation with the driver led to the request for a breath sample.
The accused is expected to appear in a Sarnia court on Dec. 12 to answer to that charge as well as having open alcohol in a motor vehicle.
