AULAC, N.B. - RCMP in New Brunswick arrested a man in Aulac, N.B. on Dec. 23 driving dangerously in a stolen car.
RCMP responded to call from police in Amherst that a vehicle was being sought in a stolen gas complaint and that he had failed to stop at the toll plaza near Westchester.
The vehicle was located by RCMP driving in the wrong direction of the divided highway on the Tantramar Marsh and were forced to the side of the road to avoid a collision.
RCMP members radioed ahead to other units, who intercepted the vehicle. At one point, the driver swerved, appearing to attempt to hit a marked RCMP cruiser.
To stop the vehicle and avoid further risk to the public, a spike strip was deployed. The suspect's vehicle was disabled and the man in his 20s arrested. The vehicle had been reported stolen from Halifax.
The man will appear in court for a bail hearing on Dec. 27.
