REGINA – Sunday morning Regina police arrested a 33-year-old man wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for being unlawfully at large, but also charged him with allegedly hitting a police officer with his truck while fleeing last month.

Regina police said they were called to the Argyle Park/Englewood neighbourhood around 2:20 a.m. Sunday for a possible stolen vehicle report.

Jason John Dunlop, who was not in the vehicle at the time, but is believed to have stolen it, was located in the area by officers.

He was taken into custody without incident.

Dunlop was wanted for questioning in connection to a hit-and-run incident that resulted in a police officer being sent to hospital in May.

Dunlop is currently facing 19 charges, including Flight While Being Pursued By A Peace Officer and Failure to Stop at the Scene of an Accident Causing Bodily Harm.

Dunlop made his first court appearance in Regina on Monday morning.
