Police have arrested a 46-year-old man from Mississauga after a series of driving-related offences.

In a press release, Peel Regional Police said they made an arrest after a man was wanted for a series of different offences, including failure to stop after a collision and driving while impaired.

In April 2022, police said they “observed” the man driving when he was forbidden from doing so. After further investigation, on Friday, police arrested Ryan Kong, a 46-year-old from Mississauga.
