Fall in creek leads to DUI

RCMP ended up finding more and less than they were looking for when responding to a call of a car in Mission Creek.

The call came in around 3:00 p.m. of a car and driver stranded in Mission Creek on East Kelowna Road just past Hollywood Road South.

When police arrived there was no car in the creek but they did find a woman who had fallen in the creek. RCMP on the scene say she needed a hand out but was not injured and did not require paramedics.

However, while police were wrapping up the call they found something else, a man drove past and this driving caught their attention.

The man just happened to be driving past the police on East Kelowna Road when they suspected he was 'driving while impaired.'

RCMP say the man was allegedly intoxicated and issued him a 24-hour suspension.

RCMP searched the man's vehicle and waited for a tow truck to come get his vehicle.
