Several charges laid after car chase in East Hants
Nova Scotia RCMP have laid charges against a 29-year-old man after a car pursuit in East Hants.
Police say they received a report of a dangerous driver at 10 p.m. on Tuesday in Upper Nine Mile River, N.S.
After locating the vehicle, the driver was “behaving erratically” and failed to stop, leading to a highway pursuit.
The car chase ended after the vehicle left the road on Highway 14 in Upper Nine Mile River.
“The driver was eventually arrested after a short struggle with police,” police said in a news release Wednesday.
Both the driver and passenger of the vehicle were taken to Colchester Hospital as a precaution after the arrest.
Michael Alexander Stockermans, 29, has been charged with dangerous driving, assaulting police, assault with a weapon, mischief, resisting arrest, and flight from police.
Stockermans remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in Shubenacadie provincial court sometime Wednesday.
Highway 14 was reopened the next morning.
