Suspended Driver Flees Traffic Stop

A Guelph woman faces several charges after fleeing a traffic stop Saturday afternoon.

Approximately 2:30 p.m. a Guelph Police Service officer saw a vehicle driving downtown and determined the driver is currently suspended. A traffic stop was conducted on Arthur Street North and the officer temporarily removed the keys from the vehicle to prevent a continuation of the offence.

While the officer was in his cruiser completing paperwork, the driver approached and began shouting at him. She then re-entered her vehicle and used a spare key to start it and speed away. In the interest of public safety the officer did not pursue the vehicle after observing it driving through a stop sign.

A 64-year-old Guelph woman is charged with flight from police, stunt driving, driving while suspended and other Highway Traffic Act offences. She will appear in court June 11. Her vehicle was impounded for 14 days.
