A Meaford male who asked police for a ride home on Sunday morning found himself getting a ride to jail instead.  On Sunday, January 18, at approximately 4:34 a.m., the youth who was prohibited from possessing or consuming alcohol, contacted Grey County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) requesting an officer give him a ride to urban Meaford from a residence on Concession 2 in the Municipality of Meaford.

Police arrived and gave the intoxicated youth a ride to the Chatsworth OPP Detachment where he was held in custody pending a bail hearing. The 18 year old accused was charged with failing to comply with a probation order.

His next court appearance is scheduled for February 5, 2015 in Owen Sound.
