On June 4, 2013, shortly after 5pm, Russell RCMP and local EMS responded to a single ATV rollover on PR 549 in the RM of Shellmouth-Boulton, northwest of Russell, MB.

Police say that the driver was found pinned under the ATV in a ditch. Several people at the scene were able to roll the ATV off the injured operator and quickly take away the keys before the driver made an attempt to ride away.

Once police arrived, the driver of the ATV was arrested and brought back to the RCMP Detachment where he was found to be over four times the legal driving limit.

RCMP report that Karson James Riddell, 21, of Regina, SK, has been remanded in custody on charges of impaired driving, driving over .08, driving while disqualified, breaching probation and one additional charge under the Highway Traffic Act.
