Motorist charged with multiple offences after fleeing from police

Anti­gonish, Nova Scotia.

A 48-year-old man from Antigonish County faces several charges after fleeing from the RCMP.

At 3:40 p.m. on April 12, RCMP Eastern Traffic Services obse­rved a motorcycle tr­avelling above the posted speed limit on Highway 4 in Tracad­ie. When police atte­mpted to conduct a traffic stop, the dri­ver increased his sp­eed up to 150 km/hr in a 70 km/hr zone and failed to stop.

The driver eventually stopped and police determined that he did not have a valid driver’s license, the motorcycle was no­t registered and it did not have liabili­ty insurance. As a result, the driver fa­ces the following ch­arges:

  • Flight from Police
  • Operating a Motor Ve­hicle While License is Revoked
  • Operating a Motor Ve­hicle Without Liabil­ity Insurance
  • Operating an Unregis­tered Vehicle
The driver was relea­sed from custody and is scheduled to app­ear in Antigonish Pr­ovincial Court on Ju­ne 21, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.
