Separate incidents led to the Estevan Police Service holding a man and woman in custody overnight.

The Estevan Police Service pulled over a 23-year-old man and demanded a breath test after smelling alcohol, according to Sgt. Tyler McMillen.

The driver failed the test and was brought to the station, where further samples indicated he was over twice the limit of .08.

He was charged with impaired driving and operating a motor vehicle over .08, and was set to be released from custody on Tuesday.

McMillen said police "stop lots of cars" as they try to keep impaired drivers off the streets.

"Sometimes it's just time of night. If it's about 1:30 or so in the morning... police can stop to check for your valid driver's license, valid registration, and driver sobriety. It was just our members being proactive and being out there."

Police were called to two domestic disturbances.

McMillen said one in the east-central part of town led to a 31-year-old woman being arrested for public intoxication and kept in cells until she sobered up.

The other was in the north-central area. Police were able to mediate it, and no further action was required.

McMillen also said police were called to a noise complaint back in the east-central part of town, but things had quieted down by the time they arrived.
