Suspect tries to run over HRP officers during pursuit

Early this morning, Halifax Regional Police apprehended a woman following a chase in Halifax. Around 3:50 a.m., during an impaired driving investigation, police tried to stop a vehicle near Brunswick and Prince streets.

The driver refused to halt, leading to a brief pursuit which the officers terminated for public safety. The suspect attempted to hit the officers with her car, but they evaded the impact. The chase ended when the driver crashed into a parked vehicle on Tower Road.

The police detained the driver and confiscated a knife. She was transported to the hospital as a precaution.
