EDWARDSBURGH-CARDINAL – A Prescott man is facing a drunk driving related charge after police found an SUV at the side of the road with the driver asleep at the wheel.

Officers came upon the 2013 Dodge Journey around 3 a.m. Saturday in the township.

If that wasn’t bad enough, officers said the man had the vehicle in drive and his foot was on the brake.

They were able to get the SUV in park but the driver woke up, put the truck in drive, and struck the push bar of the cruiser in front of him.

The 25-year-old accused from Prescott was arrested and charged with care and control of a vehicle while impaired.
