Trial set for man accused of ramming police car
Trial dates have been set for a Red Deer man alleged to have rammed a police car while officers were attempting to arrest him early in the morning of Nov. 15.
Stephen Dwayne Gibbon, 33, wanted on warrants for outstanding charges, was arrested outside of a house that had been under RCMP surveillance.
He faces a range of charges, including dangerous driving, flight from police, hit and run, resisting arrest, robbery, possession of the proceeds of crime and numerous drug-related offences.
Represented by Red Deer lawyer Will Willms, Gibbon pleaded not guilty in Red Deer provincial court on Wednesday to the robbery charge and to the charges arising from his arrest on Nov. 15, choosing to be tried by judge alone in Red Deer provincial court.
He remains in custody pending a bail review, set for March 4.
