Stunting charges for 2 Shelburne County men
Police say 2 drivers going at speeds in excess of 150 km/h
Two men are facing stunting charges after a high-speed street race in Shelburne County over the weekend.
On Sunday at around 9:30 p.m., Shelburne RCMP stopped two vehicles racing at high speeds on Highway 103.
Police say the vehicles were travelling at more than 150 km/h.
A 19-year-old man has lost his licence for seven days and had his vehicle impounded.
The other man, 26, drove away, even though he was told to stay pulled over. Police say he was arrested after he later turned himself in to police. He's charged with stunting and failing to obey a police officer.
If convicted, both drivers could face a fine of $2,418.95.
"Street Racing is dangerous and illegal, the risk to drivers and the public is extreme and the consequences can be devastating. The investigation is continuing," said Shelburne RCMP Sgt. Ben Parry in a news release.
