OPP seeking warrant for man who drove at officers, smashed into cruiser

GUELPH - Police are seeking an arrest warrant for a suspect they say narrowly missed hitting OPP officers with a vehicle and then smashed into a cruiser.

On Nov. 7 at about 1am Wellington County OPP officers were conducting a RIDE program on the Hanlon Expressway, near College Avenue, in Guelph.

Police say officers spoke to the male driver of a grey Chevrolet Impala who refused to provide a driver’s licence and then offered false verbal identification.

“The driver then put the car in gear and drove at officers, who narrowly avoided serious injuries (by) instinctively dodging the car,” police stated in a press release.

“The male continued his flight into the City of Guelph and struck a fully marked OPP cruiser to evade apprehension. Fearing that pursuing the vehicle would perpetuate the dangerous behaviour and put public safety at risk, police disengaged.”

Police say they have identified the man and are seeking a warrant for his arrest.

Witnesses are asked to contact Wellington County OPP at 1-888-310-1122. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or submit a tip online at www.csgw.tips. Tip providers may be eligible for a reward from Crime Stoppers of up to $2,000.
