    A Mississauga man has been found not guilty of driving with excess blood alcohol because a judge found police violated his rights by withholding his turban for more than three hours after his arrest.

    Not only did the officers involved not comply with Peel Regional Police’s own policy on individuals wearing turbans in custody, but one officer wasn’t even aware of it, wrote Ontario Court Justice Jill Copeland in a decision released this week.

    Sardul Singh, an observant Sikh, was arrested following a RIDE spot check in December 2014. As he was being placed in the back of a police cruiser, his turban accidentally fell off.

    But it was not returned to him for several hours, including while he was giving breath samples at the Brampton police division, leaving him feeling vulnerable, the judge wrote.

    Copeland threw out the breath samples and dismissed the case, finding Singh’s right to freedom of religion had been infringed.

    “There is no dispute that all of the officers involved in the detention of Mr. Singh were aware of the religious significance of his turban,” she wrote.

    He's clearly not an "observant Sikh" if he's driving around with a BAC over the legal limit. I should start wearing a turban and go around committing petty crimes, just so i could get away with it when I'm arrested.

    What the fuck does his dirty turban have to do with him driving drunk? The judge is just another politically correct pussey!
