Police in Cape Breton have arrested a North Sydney man accused of dangerous and impaired driving after he allegedly struck a police car this morning.
Police arrested the 31-year-old at around 9:30 a.m.
Cape Breton Regional Police said in a news release they had responded to reports that a Mazda car had been stolen from a home in North Sydney.
Officers found the car, but the driver would not stop for police.
Police said they followed the vehicle, which eventually struck the back of a police car at King and High streets, as well as a parked vehicle.
Police spokesperson Desiree Vassallo said the contact with the police car was made prior to the stolen Mazda pulling into a parking lot where police apprehended the driver, which was captured on surveillance video.
In the video, it appears the Mazda hits a parked pickup truck and a police vehicle subsequently hits the Mazda as well.
Police said three vehicles were damaged but no one was hurt. The man is in custody and police said charges are pending.
