A 34-year-old Leamington man is facing impaired driving charges after another motorist followed him, took his keys and called police.

On Saturday at about 8:20 p.m., an alert motorist contacted the OPP to report an erratic driver travelling on Essex County Road 18 in Leamington.

The caller continued to follow the vehicle, until it came to a stop in a parking lot on the 4th Concession.  The keys were taken from the driver by the caller and the vehicle was blocked in until police arrived.

Police say the driver of the vehicle exhibited signs of impairment and was arrested by police.

Peter Redekop, 34, of Leamington, will appear in a Leamington court on Jan. 5, 2017 to answer to charges of impaired operation of a motor vehicle and care or control of a motor vehicle, over 80 milligrams of alcohol.
