Drunken man fined $496 after falling asleep in stranger's bed

Drunken man fined $496 after falling asleep in stranger's bed LA PECHE, Que. — Police in Western Quebec say a man was fined $496 after he was found snoring in a stranger's bed early Sunday. The MRC des Collines police say an older woman returned home about 2 a.m. in the village of Wakefield to find the strange man, half her age, in a deep sleep in her bed. The woman didn't rouse him and instead went to the police station nearby to notify authorities. When officers woke up the man, he thought he was in his own home. Police say the man had been drinking and had mistaken the woman's house for his own, which was actually 18 kilometres further north. Sgt. Martin Fournel says the fine was for being on private property without good reason.

The driver of a large unsecured load of three scrap tractors was fined more than $2,000, in what one peace officer refers to as a severe example of cargo security issues on Alberta highways.

A photo taken by community peace officer Steve Schmidt shows a dump truck hooked to a trailer that contains three heavy pieces of farming machinery, one stacked on top of the other.

On Friday evening, Schmidt responded to a report of an unsafe load while in Strathcona County before spotting it entering Edmonton along the Sherwood Park Freeway.

"I knew immediately that the vehicle had to be stopped and that it was a pretty dangerous unsecured load," Schmidt said.

Safe grad bus driver had Naked Grape in her purse — and alcohol in her bloodstream

Safe grad bus driver had Naked Grape in her purse — and alcohol in her bloodstream Jessica Syniak had one job that night, but she was too drunk to do it. Hired to transport high school students to and from a safe grad at an RV park north of Edmonton, Syniak was seen stumbling off a school bus at about 2 a.m. "One of the parents spotted that the gal had stumbled, brought it to our security's attention and we decided that something was wrong with her," said Ken Dobush, owner of Longriders RV Park north of Edmonton. He said security officers quickly boarded the bus. "I believe it was an empty bottle of wine found in her purse, sitting at the driver's seat," Dobush said.

"I could tell from the way it was shifting when I first observed it that there was definitely some cargo securement issues. We had to get the vehicle stopped and inspect the load on the vehicle."

The driver faced a little more than $2,000 in fines, and could have faced more, instead of warnings, he said.

"This is by far one of the more severe ones we have ever dealt with, however we have been seeing a lot of cargo security issues, especially recently."

The driver was on his way to an Edmonton scrap yard before being pulled over. He was driving from Fort Assiniboine, Alta., which is bout 160 kilometres northwest of the city.
