Nanaimo RCMP looking for witnesses of arrest

NANAIMO: Police asking for witnesses or video recordings of arrest following weekend road rage incident.

Nanaimo RCMP hope the public can help with its investigation into a road rage incident on Brechin Road on the weekend.

A 65-year-old man from Surrey, driving a 1998 blue Volvo, who was trying to return to the Lower Mainland, allegedly got upset Sunday, shortly after 4:30 p.m., when he learned there was a three sailing wait to get on a ferry at the B.C. Ferries Departure Bay terminal.

Police were called after B.C. Ferries traffic controllers asked the man to move his car and he refused. An officer explained to the driver he would have to leave and come back a few hours later as there was no more room for cars.

The man then allegedly drove his car onto the sidewalk and then drove off when the member asked him for his license and registration.

When officer caught up with the car and driver on Stewart Avenue and tried to arrest him, he allegedly put the car in gear and tried to drive off again.

Concerned for the public’s safety, the officer jumped into the car and put it in park as more officers arrived to help take the man into custody.

Anyone who witnessed or happened to record the incident on video is ask to call Const. Tim Bedard at 250-754-2345.
