Niagara police say they were called out to a domestic dispute at a John Street home around 3 p.m. Sept. 10.

Upon arrival, witnesses told officers that the suspect had just left from the residence with his 5-year-old son after uttering threats to an occupant in the home.

About an hour and a half later, the suspect’s vehicle was spotted on a roadway between Thorold and Niagara Falls driving in an “erratic manner,” according to police.

The vehicle was eventually stopped in Niagara Falls at Lundy’s Lane and Beachwood Road after the suspect’s vehicle collided with an Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) cruiser that was assisting in the investigation.
