A Masset woman has been charged with impaired driving, driving while suspended and breach of undertaking after RCMP responded to a call of a possible drunk driver Wednesday morning (Aug. 29). Sgt. Jim Vardy said police apprehended the suspect, 45-year-old Nadine Yeltatzie, while she was driving on Collison Avenue. Ms Yeltatzie was convicted of impaired driving in May and was prohibited from driving for one year. She was also on conditions for an undertaking from another criminal matter, Sgt. Vardy said, with one of the conditions being that she must not consume alcohol. Ms Yeltatzie was held in custody until Thursday (Aug. 30), when a Prince Rupert judge released her with conditions. According to those conditions, she must not drink alcohol, must stay in her house unless she is with a sober adult or unless there is an emergency, must not be in the driver’s seat of any vehicle, and must not have any alcohol in her home. Her car has been impounded for 60 days. She is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 12.
