A man has been charged after fleeing police last night.
At 11:30 p.m. officers attempted to stop a car for travelling too quickly for the weather conditions. The officers stopped the car mid-span on the Macdonald Bridge and upon speaking with the driver, recognized him as a person wanted on a warrant. The officers asked the driver to turn off and exit the vehicle but he refused. The vehicle sped away toward Dartmouth, proceeding through the bridge tolls and continuing up Nantucket Avenue into a residential area. The car eventually came to a stop on the fairway of a Dartmouth Golf Course due to the heavy snow. The five occupants of the vehicle fled on foot but were all were located shortly thereafter in the vicinity of the golf course by patrol and K-9 members.
The driver of the vehicle, 28-year-old Stephen Henry Peter-Paul of Musquodoboit, was arrested at the scene without incident. He was held in custody in relation to a parole suspension warrant issued by Correctional Services Canada on October 25 for being unlawfully at large. Peter-Paul appeared in Halifax Provincial Court this morning to face charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police and possession of hydromorphone.
