Serial drunk driver pleads not guilty

A serial drunk driver pleaded not guilty yesterday to his latest charge of impaired driving and will go to trial on Oct. 16.

Terry Naugle, a 51-year-old from the Truro region, has well over 20 convictions for drunk driving offences, and is now before the court again facing new charges of impaired driving, refusing a breathalyzer, failing to stop at the scene of an accident and driving while disqualified.

He was arrested on March 28 in connection with a hit-and-run accident on Highway 102 near Enfield.

Naugle’s 10-minute appearance in Dartmouth provincial court yesterday was his fourth time before a judge on these latest charges.

Naugle has been remanded since being arrested, which he consented to again yesterday as he now waits for trial.

Naugle asked for a trial by judge and that will take place in Dartmouth. The trial is expected to last one day.
