Police in the Wasaga Beach area have been busy dealing with drunk drivers this weekend.

Officers were called to a collision on Golf Course Road around 8 PM Saturday.

The driver, a 21 year old man from Clearview Township, has been charged with impaired driving.

Just about a half hour later, police were called about a pick up truck that hit a ditch and struck a tree on County Road 9 in Clearview.

Police found the vehicle in Creemore and charged a 44 year old man from the township with driving under the influence and failing to remain at the scene.

A 23 year old man from Clearview is charged after a driver blew three times the legal limit of alcohol when a vehicle was stopped on Mosley Street in Wasaga Beach.

And just before 3 AM Sunday, officers were called about a possible drunk driver leaving a camp ground and heading out of town.

Police caught up to the vehicle in Orr Lake, but it sped away leading police on a chase.

Once it was stopped, the driver tried to reverse away from police and the vehicle rolled into a ditch.

A 17 year old from Springwater Township faces a number of charges.
