Drunken driving, Windsor Way: On Sept. 6, police were dispatched to a one-car crash on Windsor Way.

An arriving officer located a red Chevy Trax, which struck a tree. The driver, who was still in the Trax, smelled like booze.

When asked if he had been drinking, the man slurred, “Oh, yeah, a couple of drinks.” The man then attempted to explain the car crash to the officer.

He said the car he hit swerved into him. At that point, the office corrected the driver and told him he actually hit a tree.

The driver then looked up and admitted he indeed hit a tree. After failing a field sobriety test — during which he said, “You are going to arrest me anyways, you might as well do it” — the man was arrested for drunken driving.

‘For public and officer safety:’ Edmonton city police mum on possibility of third armoured vehicle

Edmonton city police have two armoured vehicles in their arsenal but remain coy on what funding is available for a third.

City police spokeswoman Cheryl Voordenhout said the the force currently has a Ballistic Armoured Tactical Transport (B.A.T.T.) vehicle and a Grizzly vehicle.

“Armoured vehicles are essentially police rescue vehicles,” said Voordenhout. “In the case of an event involving weapons, these vehicles would be used for public and officer safety.”

Voordenhout added that questions regarding funding for armoured vehicle replacements or purchases would have to be answered through the Freedom of Information and Privacy (FOIP) unit. She said requests for operational information regarding specialized police equipment is beyond the scope of the communications depatment.

The country’s Department of National Defence has donated at least five armoured vehicles to police agencies since 2007: the Grizzly armoured personnel carrier to Edmonton city police that year; two Cougar armoured vehicles to the B.C.
