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.
