A 37 year-old Regina man has been charged in connection with an incident of dangerous driving and evading a peace officer.
On Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at 11:41 a.m., Regina Police Service officers were dispatched to the area of Victoria Avenue and Park Street for a report of dangerous driving. Another motorist reported seeing a van driving erratically and gave a vehicle description, including the license plate information. When police got to the area, they weren’t able to find the suspect vehicle. They confirmed the address of the registered owner of the vehicle and made their way to owner’s house. While police were en route to the residence of the registered owner, the RPS Communications Centre got another call: this time from CP Police advising one of their constables had tried to stop a van driving erratically in the area of Fleet Street and McDonald. Police searched near the second location but still didn’t locate the vehicle. They were successful when they went to the home of the registered owner and learned that she had loaned the van to an acquaintance. When that individual arrived back at the owner’s house, police were able to arrest the driver and subsequently charged him.
