Client went to leave a bar but noticed a police officer driving by. He quickly ran away from his vehicle so as not to be seen by the officer in the travelling vehicle. Little known to the client, another police officer was watching all of this from another police vehicle parked close by. After the client thought the “coast was clear”, he got back in his car and drove away. He was pulled over soon later. He provided a sample of his breath into a roadside device which produced a “fail” reading and was arrested because of it. He eventually provided samples of his breath well in excess of the legal limit and was charged accordingly. A few weeks before trial Mr. van der Walle sent Notice of his Constitutional Argument to the Crown alleging that the client’s Charter rights had been violated in numerous ways both at the scene and back at the detachment. The prosecutor agreed and on New Year’s Eve the client got a gift of sorts by way of news that the Crown had decided to drop all the charges. No trial necessary.
