A scary moment at the beach in Port Dover has a Stoney Creek man facing several charges.
Saturday morning, police were called down after a blue van drove onto the beach, reversed back onto the roadway, and then drove over a sidewalk to go once again go back onto the beach, this time striking a tent and several chairs.
A family with a small child needed to take evasive action to avoid being struck by the vehicle.
Several Good Samaritans approached and removed the driver from the vehicle and held him until police arrived.
As a result, police have charged a 43-year-old male of Stoney Creek with dangerous driving, impaired driving, driving with more than 80mgs of alcohol in blood and fail to comply with a probation order.
He is currently being held in custody pending a bail hearing scheduled for Sunday.
