A Brampton teen - with a G1 licence - is facing numerous drinking and driving-related charges after he was nabbed by Ontario Provincial Police in Bolton.

The incident took place on Dec. 7 at 10:48 pm.

That’s when OPP’s Caledon community response unit was conducting RIDE spot checks on Albion Vaughan Rd., north of Mayfield Rd.

A black 2015 Honda Civic entered the RIDE spot check and an officer allegedly saw open alcohol in the car.

The officer then spoke to the driver, and allegedly smelled alcohol on his breath.

The driver failed a test, and was arrested.

The suspect, a 17-year-old boy - whose name is protected under the Youth Criminal Justice Act - is charged with: drive motor vehicle with more than 80 mgs of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood; person under 19 years consuming alcohol; drive motor vehicle with open container of liquor; drive in contravention of conditions; young driver - B.A.C. above zero; class G1 licence holder - unaccompanied by qualified driver.

The boy is scheduled to appear in Orangeville court on Dec. 28.
