TORONTO -- A 49-year-old Oshawa, Ont., motorist is accused of drunk driving while his two-year-old daughter was in the front seat.

Durham Regional Police received a call about an impaired driver Friday night around 7:45 p.m. and a motorist sped away when officers located a suspect vehicle.

"The cruiser got nearby and then the driver sped off," Durham Regional Police spokesman Dave Selby said.

Officers followed the vehicle to the accused man's home where the driver stopped.

When officers approached the vehicle, the driver refused to exit and there was a struggle, according to police.

The driver was eventually taken to a nearby station for breath tests.
