A 33-year-old man from Low, Que., was arrested after fleeing from police who were trying to intercept his vehicle during curfew hours, police from MRC des Collines-de-l’Outaouais said Wednesday.
Officers first tried to intercept a driver in La Pêche Municipality around 2 a.m. on Tuesday, police said, but he refused to stop and changed course to go on several secondary roads at high speed.

That same night, however, the man was traced to his residence and arrested. He was then charged with fleeing, dangerous driving and failing to comply with a promise. He was then released from custody on several conditions and bail.
The man also received two “statements of offence” from police: one for $2,250 for driving a vehicle without an alcohol ignition interlock device and another for failing to respect the night-time curfew set down by the Quebec government because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
