Bad drivers make CCPS something something
By Dan Perry
Hey London — who loves ya, baby? With some idiot spreading
HIV and multiple drunk drivers, April just can’t come
fast enough for students. In fact, that probably explains the
high incidence of drunken debauchery this week on campus.
According to Elgin Austen, spokesperson for the Campus Community
Police Service, there were multiple traffic stops, including
charges for speeding and failing to stop. “Drivers should
be paying attention at this time of year, as road conditions
are uncertain,” he advised.
“Driving conditions aren’t the greatest at the
best of times and [one] particular individual thinking he could
drive under the influence was stopped,” Austen reported,
noting the male received a 12-hour license suspension.
For the sake of one lucky young rummie, Austen also reminded
students to consider how they are getting home before beginning
to drink — one student was found by a CCPS officer in
a Western Rd. snowbank, trying to get back to his residence
after getting sloshed at a house party. Unfortunately for the
student, he was underage and subsequently charged.
Did anyone wake up beside this guy? (see photo). Const. Paul
Martin of the London Police Department reported some more disturbing
news this week, with the report of 34-year-old Donald Scott
Deblois, who has been diagnosed with HIV and has possibly spread
the virus to as many as 11 women — knowingly.
In other news, Martin reported that a woman awoke in her Bow
St. residence at 4 a.m. Saturday to find a male intruder in
her room, and was stabbed. The woman is in fair condition and
the major crimes unit is investigating. The suspect is described
as being in his 30s and was wearing a dark T-shirt and pants.
Martin reminded residents to take necessary precautions by
keeping their doors and windows locked.
Finally this week, the results are in: Wellington Rd. at Commissioners
Rd. is the new city champion of motor vehicle collisions climbing
from fourth to first in 2003 by scoring 103 collisions. Last
year’s winner, Highbury Ave. at Oxford St., fell to number
5 — and with the Super Bowl betting craze just ending,
bookies say 2004 is wide open.
