A RIDE program in the eastbound lanes of the 401 at Wellington Road on Sunday evening lead to a long list of charges for a 60-year-old driver.

At 2:30 a.m., a routine traffic stop turned sour after officers searched the vehicle and located controlled substances – at which time two individuals were placed under arrest.

During the investigation, historical incidents of intimate partner violence came to light. As a result, charges issued against the driver included spousal assault with a weapon, possession of cocaine and opioids, and open alcohol.

The 48-year-old passenger was also charged with possession of controlled substances.
