A 66 year old man faces potential charges after he allegedly rammed a police vehicle near the border of Kelowna and Lake Country.
The man was said to be causing a disturbance outside his residence in the 700 block of Beaver Lake Road Sunday afternoon, with neighbors hearing the man yelling and screaming and acting erratically.
“Officers arrived on the scene and immediately began efforts to de-escalate the situation,” says Cpl. Jesse O’Donaghey. “The male retreated to his personal vehicle, which once inside he proceeded to ram one of the police vehicles twice prior to fleeing the scene.”
The man was taken into police custody, and apprehended under the Mental Health Act without further incident, after he returned to his home.
The Lake Country Mountie whose police vehicle was rammed, continues to recover from the non-life threatening injuries she sustained as a result of the incident.
