At approximately 6:40pm on September 18th,  police observed a male who seemed to be having a difficult time operating a motorcycle along Woodlawn Road. The other issue was that the driver was also operating it on the pedestrian sidewalk. The vehicle pulled into a parking lot and came to a stop where police spoke with the driver.

It was learned that the driver was prohibited from driving any kind of motor vehicle anywhere due to a previous Criminal Code conviction. The male was arrested and the motorcycle was impounded.

Damien Hitchcock-Hurst, a 21 year old Guelph man,  was charged with driving while disqualified and breach of probation. He was later released and will appear in court on October 31, 2017.
