CrimeOhsweken man facing multiple charges after RIDE stop

An Ohsweken man has been charged with multiple offences after he failed to proceed through a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (R.I.D.E.) program.  

Officers with the Six Nations Police were stationed on Mohawk Road to conduct a R.I.D.E program at approximately 8:10 p.m. pm Saturday, May 18, 2024.

Officers observed the vehicle travelling towards the program. The vehicle turned around, avoiding the R.I.D.E location. Officers conducted a traffic stop of the vehicle and observed a male driver and passenger.  The driver displayed signs of impairment. Police advised the driver that he was being pulled over to check for sobriety.  

As a result of the investigation, Randy Berry HILL (64 years old) of Ohsweken, Ontario has  been charged with the following offences: 

– Impaired Operation 

– Alcohol per se Offence “80 plus” 

– Operation while Prohibited x 2 

– Driving while under Suspension  

The accused was held in custody pending a formal bail hearing and is scheduled to appear in the Ontario Court of Justice at a later date in Brantford, Ontario.  

Drivers are reminded that the Mandatory Alcohol Screening law allows police with an approved alcohol screening device to demand a roadside breath sample from any lawfully stopped driver without having reasonable suspicion that a driver is alcohol impaired.  

The Six Nations Police remain committed to taking alcohol/drug-impaired drivers off our  roads through enforcement and public education.
