KINGSTON, Ont. — Boston Bruins prospect Jamie Arniel has been charged with six offences in connection with an alleged impaired driving incident here last month.

Arniel was selected 97th during the fourth round of the NHL draft in Ottawa on June 21.

Hours later, the 18-year-old — a nephew of former NHLer Scott Arniel — was arrested by Kingston Police on June 22.

It is alleged that Arniel was driving a white Toyota that zigzagged across the lawns of a west-end neighbourhood, hitting parked cars, a utility pole and a stop sign.

Police made the arrest after a 911 call that came in around 3 a.m.

He submitted a breath test showing a blood-alcohol level more than 2.5 times the legal limit.

Arniel has been charged with impaired driving, driving with a blood-alcohol level over the limit and four counts of failing to remain at the scene of an accident.

He will appear in a Kingston court on July 8.
