Off Duty Saskatoon Officers Arrest Impaired Driver After Collision

Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Two off-duty Saskatoon Police Service members assisted in the arrest of an impaired driver after a collision Friday evening.

Just before 10:30 PM, two off-duty officers were about to enter their personal vehicle in the 500 block of 20th Street West, when they observed a westbound car narrowly miss a pedestrian and collide with a parked vehicle. After the collision, the driver operating the westbound vehicle did not stop and continued west on 20th St.

The officers followed the suspect vehicle until it came to a stop at 20th Street and Ave. M where they were able to extract the driver and place her under arrest. On duty Patrol officers arrived on the scene and took the suspect into custody.
