An alleged drunk driver has been issued a three-day driving suspension after the man drove his vehicle into the Forbes IDA Pharmacy on Fort Street Tuesday night.

The driver was travelling southbound on Richmond Avenue approaching Fort Street at approximately 8:30 p.m., when he started to have a “coughing fit” which caused him to careen across the street, over the curb, onto the sidewalk and into the pharmacy.

There was significant damage to the building and the car, but no one was injured.

Officers suspected the driver was impaired by alcohol. Using screening devices, the driver blew a ‘warn’ twice.

The driver’s vehicle was also seized.
