Commodre Drive, NS

A Nova Scotia man faces a number of charges in an alleged stunt driving incident in Halifax.

Police say an officer patrolling in the Dartmouth area Saturday night spotted two vehicles racing on Commodore Drive.

They say both drivers sped up when they saw the officer and drove away.

It's alleged one of the motorists continued to drive recklessly and avoided a traffic stop before coming to a stop at a dead-end.

Police say a 20-year-old man then surrendered to police, who seized his licence and vehicle.

He is charged with flight from police, dangerous driving and vehicle stunting.
