Bolton woman faces several charges after fleeing from a RIDE check


On Thursday, July 6, 2017 at approximately 12:53 am, officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) were conducting a Reduce Impaired Driving Everywhere (RIDE) program on Albion Vaughan Road east of Highway 50.

At this time, a black 2007 Cadillac Escalade drove erratically towards the RIDE program. While checking for sobriety of the driver, the officer detected an odour of an alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath. The female was instructed to pull over for further investigation; however, she sped off and disobeyed the officer’s directive. The driver attempted to flee from police and drove in a dangerous manner to a residence in Bolton. The officer arrived at the residence and attempted to effect an arrest of the driver, who resisted. The driver was eventually arrested with assistance from a second officer.
