Police say a man is facing charges after allegedly driving drunk, without lights and the wrong direction on an expressway in Guelph.
Provincial police say they received reports of a "dark vehicle" travelling the wrong way on the Hanlon Parkway -- headed toward Highway 401 -- at about 8 p.m. Thursday.
They say officers located the vehicle -- a black Jaguar -- in a ditch just north of Highway 401.
A 27-year-old Waterloo man faces charges, including dangerous driving and impaired driving.
OPP say the man's driver's licence has been suspended for 90 days and his car impounded for a week.
He is to appear in Guelph court on Dec. 12.
