'Upset' man smashed window, then drove drunk, police say
A Sudbury, Ont., man faces a dozen charges after police allege that he "became upset" when he wasn’t allowed to enter a home and then drove erratically while over the legal limit.
A news release from the Greater Sudbury Police says that the man was "denied entry" to a residence in the Donovan area shortly past 2:30 a.m. on Sunday.
Police say he then smashed the front window of the residence, got into a vehicle and subsequently hit a vehicle parked nearby.
When police arrived on scene a short time later, the man returned in the vehicle, but got stuck in a snowbank.
Officers approached the vehicle, but the man would not get out, police say.
Police allege the man then backed his vehicle up. Two officers had to jump to avoid being hit.
The man then struck the same vehicle that had been hit previously and fled the scene.
The 37-year-old male driver was arrested a short time later. Police allege he was "found to be in an impaired condition."
Police say he faces mischief, assault with a weapon and criminal harassment charges, as well as resisting arrest, failing to stop for police and several charges related to impaired and dangerous driving.
