The incident happened around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday when police pulled over a Mercedes-Benz sedan traveling without a front plate in the Glassco Avenue and Dunsmure Road area.

Learning that the 18-year-old driver was under suspension and wanted for several other Highway Traffic Act violations, officers began to impound the vehicle when the suspect’s friend showed up and tried to prevent the Mercedes from being towed.

A 19-year-old, in a Mitsubishi Outlander, drove that vehicle around the block, over a sidewalk, and across a lawn at an unsafe speed during the attempt to block the tow.
