Four people were arrested after a weekend CheckStop in Medicine Hat.

On Saturday evening, over a thousand vehicles were stopped and two people were charged with impaired driving.

Police say one driver fled CheckStop, but it didn’t take long for officers to catch up and arrest the suspect.

Meantime, arrests were made for driving while prohibited and breach of bail conditions. Four tickets were handed out along with 36 warnings.
