According to the service, after asking the driver for her licence, she instead produced an LCBO gift card while denying she had been drinking.

“However officers could detect an odour of alcohol beverage,” police said.

The woman failed a roadside breathalyzer test and further testing at the station confirmed she had more than the legal limit of alcohol in her system.
