Man arrested after van drives on crowded beach in Port Dover

PORT DOVER — Ontario Provincial Police say a 43-year-old man has been arrested for impaired driving after he allegedly drove onto a crowded beach in Port Dover on Saturday morning.

Police say they received a call around 11:30 a.m. about a van driving on the beach.

A video posted on social media shows the van reversing off the beach and then driving back onto it, where there were groups of people.

OPP say no one was struck or injured.

The video shows several people running toward the vehicle and pulling the driver out.

Police say bystanders restrained him until officers arrived.

They say a Hamilton man is facing charges including impaired driving, dangerous driving and breach of probation.

“I can tell you that the male is extremely intoxicated,” OPP Const. Ed Sanchuk said in a video posted on Twitter. “I just also wanted to say thank you to the Good Samaritans that assisted by removing that male from the vehicle.”
