An Uxbridge man has been charged after allegedly leading police on a high-speed pursuit and ramming three cruisers.
According to the DRPS, officers were called to Goodwood Road following reports that two males were fighting around 10:15 p.m. Tuesday (Oct. 13).
“One of the males left the area in a pickup truck eastbound on Goodwood Road,” reads a media release.
“Police pursued the truck, which was travelling at high speeds along Goodwood Road to Concession Road 7. The vehicle stopped on Bell Street and reversed into a cruiser, rendering it inoperable. A second cruiser was hit twice by the suspect at Reach and East Streets; the second impact caused the airbags to deploy in the cruiser.”
Police say a third cruiser was hit by the suspect at Lakeridge Road and Reach Street before he drove off northbound on Lakeridge Road toward Highway 47.
“The area was checked by officers and Air1 with negative results. No one was hurt as a result of these three collisions,” the media release reads.
Police were reportedly called to a residence in the area of Goodwood Road and Front Street around 2 a.m. Wednesday (Oct. 14) for an unwanted person call involving the same suspect.
“He fled on foot through nearby backyards where he was located in a child’s playhouse concealing a knife in his hands,” the media release reads.
“After a brief struggle, the male was arrested by officers.”
Daniel Trudel, 31, is facing multiple charges, including flight from a peace officer; dangerous operation of a conveyance; possession of a weapon dangerous to public peace and fail to remain.
He was held for a bail hearing.
