A Barrie man drew attention to himself by travelling at a high rate of speed on Highway 400, say police.
And when action met reaction, police say the driver, 35, was arrested for being impaired behind the wheel, later providing two breath samples resulting in readings twice the legal limit.
He was charged with impaired driving and over 80 mgs, and his license was suspended. He faces a future court date on the charges.
