Erratic driver arrested, charges pending

(Ottawa)—This week, Ottawa Police have received public complaints about a person driving erratically in the St. Laurent Blvd and Donald Street area. On Tuesday and Wednesday, a male was stopped by police and charged with various driving violations and criminal charges. 

This morning at about 8:00 a.m., Frontline officers responded to multiple 911 calls from residents about a possibly impaired driver, who was driving erratically and involved in multiple hit and runs in the area of Donald and St. Laurent. 

Multiple officers searched the area to find the suspect’s vehicle. Pursuits were engaged but were immediately called off. Public safety was still at risk so officers remained in the area. 

Following another call from a member of the public, the vehicle was located nearby and the male driver was arrested. 

During this search, a police vehicle was involved in a collision with another vehicle driven by a member of the public at the intersection of St Laurent Blvd and Tremblay Avenue. Both the member of the public and the officer suffered minor injuries. 

The investigation is ongoing by Central Criminal Investigations and charges may be laid. 

Anyone with information about the incidents this morning is asked to call the Ottawa Police Service Central Criminal Investigations Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5166. 

Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 or at crimestoppers.ca
