A Ponoka driver accused of hitting vehicles and pedestrians during a string of collisions in Red Deer on July 31 was granted bail on Monday in Red Deer provincial court.
Red Deer City RCMP earlier said several people called them about an erratic driver in the Highland Green and Riverside Meadows who allegedly struck three vehicles and two pedestrians, who suffered minor injuries.
Police also allege the driver was holding a female passenger in his vehicle against her will for part of the time he was driving dangerously.
The victim accused the suspect of threatening her before she was able to escape.
Joseph Paul Donovan, 34, is charged failing to stop at the scene of an accident, assaulting a police officer, forcible confinement, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm.
