Police say man entered hotel 'brandishing both a pool cue and a knife' after car went into ditch
A 44-year-old Guelph man is facing a number of charges after police say a car was stolen from a residence and then driven through the garage door before crashing in a ditch at a dog park.
Police were called to a home in the south end of Guelph Monday morning after a man entered the garage and stole the car, causing damage to both the car and the garage door.
The car was then driven at a high rate of speed into a dog park at Kortright Road W. and Hanlon Parkway where it crashed into a ditch, police say.
"The male then entered a nearby hotel, brandishing both a pool cue and a knife," police said in a release. Officers arrived at the hotel and arrested the man.
He has been charged with breaking and entering, theft of a motor vehicle, two counts of mischief under $5,000, possession of a weapon for dangerous purposes, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, theft from a motor vehicle, two counts of driving while under suspension and breach of probation.
He has also been charged with arson causing damage to property to an unrelated previous case, police said.
