At approximately 3:45 a.m. on January 31, members of the Halifax Regional Police noticed a Chev pickup truck with a red ATV in the back on Herring Cove Road near Lynette Road in Halifax. As there had been recent ATV thefts in the area, officers attempted to stop the vehicle by activating their emergency equipment, however, the vehicle failed to stop. A traffic pursuit was initiated but called off as it was within a residential neighborhood. The vehicle was seen travelling along North West Arm Drive where the pursuit was started again. The vehicle drove over the centre median and onto the wrong side of North West Arm Drive for a short period of time but then returned to the proper side of the road. As an officer was attempting to deploy a spike belt in the area of North West Arm Drive and Walter Havill Drive, the vehicle swerved toward the officer just before driving over the spike belt. The vehicle slowed as a result but did not stop. The vehicle continued onto Highway 102 outbound and a second spike belt was deployed near Larry Uteck Boulevard. The vehicle eventually slowed and stopped on Highway 102 before Hammonds Plains Road. The driver was taken into custody without incident. A 20-year-old man from Halifax will appear in Halifax Provincial Court on Monday February 1 to face charges of flight from police, assault with a weapon (which is the motor vehicle), dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and impaired operation of a motor vehicle.
