A Winnipeg man will appear in an Ontario courtroom Tuesday after being arrested during a routine traffic stop Monday afternoon.

Ontario Provincial Police stopped a vehicle in Dryden, Ont., just after 2 p.m., due to unauthorized licence plates. Police said they determined the driver was drug-impaired and was prohibited from driving.

The man, 28, was arrested and charged with driving while prohibited, driving while impaired and obstructing a peace officer. He was taken to the Dryden OPP detachment for further testing and held in custody until his scheduled appearance before the Ontario court of justice.
