CHARLOTTETOWN - A soldier has pleaded guilty to a charge of impaired driving after slamming a military vehicle into four others in a P.E.I. military compound.
Master Cpl. Sean Maynard Manser, 22, from Canadian Forces Base Gagetown in New Brunswick entered the plea Thursday.
Court was told that Manser, who's a military driving instructor, had finished his work for the day and decided to have a few drinks.
He later climbed into the cab of a 10-tonne truck and promptly struck four vehicles, most of them belonging to the military.
The total damage topped $13,000.
Manser's blood-alcohol level was double the legal limit.
Court was told Manser has addictions issues.
The judge has adjourned the case for sentence until April 12, pending the preparation of a pre-sentence report.
