Suspect arrested after allegedly crashing into cruiser
A suspect is now in police custody after he allegedly crashed into a police cruiser and fled when officers tried to arrest him on Thursday.
City RCMP said Stephen Dwayne Gibbon, 33, of Red Deer fled after officers on surveillance tried to stop him outside a city residence at 1:05 p.m. on Thursday.
He allegedly ran his car into the side of the cruiser and took off. RCMP followed but ended the pursuit because of the high speed that the suspect was driving.
Gibbon is charged with dangerous driving, flight from police, failing to remain at the scene of an accident and driving while unauthorized. He was already wanted on a warrant for robbery.
RCMP officers arrested him Friday morning. A court date has not been set yet.
