Wanted Windsor Man Arrested After Attempting To Run From Police
A Windsor man is facing multiple charges after he tried to run from police.
Police say that around 9am on November 8th, 2018 while on routine patrol, officers came across a vehicle with licence plates affixed not belonging to that vehicle. Officers attempted to perform a vehicle stop, at which time the driver began driving erratically into oncoming traffic.
The suspect vehicle fled towards Howard Avenue and Eugenie Street East where traffic was congested due to an unrelated accident.
A male passenger exited the vehicle and was later arrested without incident on an outstanding warrant.
Officers attempted to arrest the male driver who refused to exit the vehicle. Officers saw that the driver was in possession of suspected illicit drugs while also attempting to conceal and destroy them.
In an attempt to gain control of the driver, officers broke the window, at which time the driver continued resisting officers while also moving the vehicle forward. The vehicle was placed in park at which time officers utilized a taser on the driver. This allowed officers to remove the driver from the vehicle at which time the driver continued resisting officers attempts to arrest him.
Officers were subsequently able to secure the driver in handcuffs and place him under arrest.
Upon searching the vehicle, officers located stolen licence plates as well 0.2 grams of suspected methamphetamine and 0.8 grams of suspected heroin.
Scott Montgomery,25, is charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, possession of stolen property, resist arrest, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, and two counts of breach of recognizance.
