A Brockton man is facing impaired charges after driving into Lake Simcoe. 
 
Orillia OPP say around 3 AM Sunday, they were called to West Street South at Olive Crescent to a report of a Chevy Sierra Pickup truck that was partially submerged in water. 
 
Officers add the truck was 50 to 60 yards from the shore. 
 
The lone occupant of the truck -- a 28 year old Brockton man -- has been charged with operating a motor vehicle -- over 80mgs of alcohol. 
 
He was also treated for minor injures. 
 
He will be in a Orillia court room later this month.
