A former Red Deer police commission member and ex-president of Neighbourhood Watch reserved his plea on drunk driving charges when a lawyer appeared for him on Friday.
Ben Gershon Ordman, 41, returns to provincial court on Nov. 13 to enter pleas on refusing to provide a breath sample and impaired driving.
Ordman was charged on Sept. 11 in a rural area near Red Deer.
The accused didn’t appear in court but was represented by an agent for his lawyer John MacNaughton.
A suspect was stopped by RCMP after he was spotted driving a vehicle on railroad tracks.
Ordman was a citizen-at-large member of the police commission member in the 2004-05 period and was a Neighbourhood Watch official in 2004.
He also ran unsuccessfully for Red Deer city council in the 2004 municipal election.
