Motorist charged following pursuit

A man who led police on a chase south of Brandon eventually drove through a ditch and sideswiped a police cruiser — but he never exceeded the speed limit, police say.

Brandon cops first pulled over a blue 1992 Plymouth just after noon on Monday, in Cornell Bay. Officers say the vehicle had faulty equipment and was unsafe to drive.

However, when the man was told that the vehicle had to be pulled off the road, he instead drove off.

Officers gave chase as the man drove into the rural areas south of Brandon. He kept within the speed limit, but wouldn't stop. Police tried to box the vehicle in at a parking lot at a business along Highway 10, but the man drove through a ditch instead, hitting the side of a police vehicle in the process.

The chase continued along gravel roads towards Carroll, where police say the man was believed to live.

At that point, they called off the pursuit, and had RCMP arrest the man at his home.

A 33-year-old Carroll man is to appear in court on Dec. 23 on charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and flight from police.
