A 35-year-old London man is facing a handful of charges after police say an attempted traffic stop in Thames Centre ended in an arrest in London three days later.
According to police, OPP attempted to conduct a traffic stop on Cromarty Drive in Thames Centre at roughly 9 a.m. on July 23, but the driver allegedly tried to avoid officers by entering a private park.
Police allege the driver “became assaultive towards police.” OPP say officers used a conducted energy weapon on the suspect, but he reportedly continued to resist and fled from police.
On July 26, OPP and London police executed a warrant at an address in London.
As a result of the investigation, police say the 35-year-old London man has been charged with assaulting a peace officer, resisting a peace officer, dangerous operation and operation while prohibited.
