Orangeville Police charge man from Walton after chase.

Charges have been laid against a driver from Walton after an incident in Orangeville.

Friday night, Orangeville Police received multiple calls about a possible impaired driver, the first one came in from an off-duty officer.

The officer said the vehicle almost collided with his, police arrived and tried to follow the suspect -- but called off the chase for safety reasons.

Police were then called by a homeowner about the suspect who was on foot and asked them to call a cab for him.

He fled again before police arrived and eventually around 2 am, the man called police himself saying he was cold and lost.

A 35 year old man from Walton is charged.
