A 35 year-old Regina male is facing five charges as a result of an incident on Saturday, June 29, 2013, which began with a suspicion of impaired driving.
On Saturday, June 29, 2013, at about 5:39 p.m., two off-duty police officers spotted a vehicle being driven in an erratic manner and called the police communications centre to report a suspected impaired driver. The two then followed the vehicle to the 2100 block of Angus Street and identified themselves as police before taking the keys from the ignition of the suspect vehicle. It’s alleged the male driver then entered a residence and came out with a second set of keys to the vehicle and an expandable baton. It’s alleged he threatened the officers with the baton and then drove away. An on-duty officer spotted the vehicle east-bound on 13th Avenue and activated lights, but the vehicle sped away. The suspect vehicle was located, abandoned, a short time later in the 3200 block of Victoria Avenue. It appeared the vehicle had been involved in a collision. The driver was located nearby, hiding under a van. The male was taken into custody without further incident. (The next day, officers found a stop sign in the area of Retallack Street and Victoria Avenue that had been struck and snapped off; they notified the City of the damage.)
