Dangerous Driving / Assault Police
On October 25th, 2012 at approximately 10:30 a.m., HPS ACTION officers on patrol bikes observed a male in a van on James St. near Cannon St. The male was known to police as being a suspended driver. HPS attempted to stop the van and the officers were forced to jump out of the way of the van as the driver made no attempt to stop and drove at the officers. The van continued to drive away at a high rate of speed and in a dangerous manner, driving the wrong way on one-way streets and going through red lights. The van crashed into a pole on Wilson St. at John St. The driver was arrested and held for a bail hearing. Nobody was injured in this incident.
Talk about exictment!
