drug driver arrested for failing roadside test in newport

A man who was caught drug driving by Police has been arrested after failing a roadside test in Newport this afternoon.

The driver was stopped driving his Renault on Godric Road in Newport on Saturday afternoon after Police gave a clear warning drink and drug driving would result in being arrested if over the limit.

The driver failed the roadside drugs test after testing positive for cannabis at the roadside. He was arrested and has been taken into police custody at Newport.

He will now have to give Police a sample of blood for testing and be questioned over the matter.

Choosing to drive when impaired by drugs is dangerous and unacceptable. Anyone who breaks the law can expect to face prosecution he is one of many who have been caught during the high profile operation taking place this weekend on the Isle of Wight
