Red Deer City RCMP arrested a man on several criminal charges this morning after a police pursuit of a vehicle on the south end of the city.
Police were initially called out to a domestic assault in south Red Deer shortly before 7 a.m.
RCMP members arrived to find a female being dragged beside a moving vehicle before she was pulled in.
Mounties pursued the pickup truck, pulling a utility trailer with a quad, south of the city. As it slowed down to about 20 km/h, the female jumped out.
Police say the pursuit continued down a dead-end road and into a field. The truck stopped and the driver tried to flee on the quad, but he was nabbed by RCMP.
RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Sarah Knelsen said that one police cruiser was sideswiped by the truck as it had tried to enter the vehicle.
According to RCMP, the accused had seven outstanding warrants. The trailer and quad were reported stolen.
Charges of dangerous driving, flight from police, and possession of stolen property were laid. Outstanding warrants are pending.
The amount of property reported stolen totalled about $100,000.
The name of the accused has not been released. Police say there were no injuries related to the pursuit or involving the woman.
The RCMP investigation continues.
