A 25-year-old Sudbury man was arrested April 13 without incident after police obtained a warrant for his arrest, following two dangerous driving incidents.
The first time he appeared on police radar was Feb. 29, when he was speeding down The Kingsway around 2 a.m. Police tried to stop his dark-coloured Honda, but were unsuccessful.
Again, on March 31, just after 3 p.m., members of the Traffic Management Unit tried to stop the same vehicle on Bancroft Drive.
“On this occasion, the driver sped up towards an officer who was on foot,” a media release from Greater Sudbury Police stated. “Another officer attempted to stop the car but the driver exhibited the same disregard for the safety of those around him and continued onto Howey Drive at an extremely high rate of speed.”
In the interest of public safety, the officers did not pursue the driver.
Following his arrest, the man will appear in bail court to answer to charges of flight from police, dangerous driving, driving while under suspension and use of plates for authorized for a vehicle relating to the February incident. More charges from the March incident are pending.
