Teen tries to block cops from towing Mercedes, gets arrested

Recommended Posts

A 19-year-old is facing obstruction and dangerous driving charges after allegedly trying to block police from towing an 18-year-old associate's Mercedes-Benz, Hamilton police say.

 

The incident started shortly after 12:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a news release.

 

That's when officers were in the area of Glassco Avenue North and Dunsmure Road in the city's east end. According to police, they spotted a silver Mercedes-Benz sedan being driven without a front licence plate in the area.

 

Officers followed the vehicle, and once the driver stopped, he was spotted as a "known suspended driver," a police news release reads. The 18-year-old driver was then stopped.

 

"During the investigation into the suspended driver, a male associated with him attended the scene," a police news release reads. "The driver directed the unknown male to position his vehicle where it could prevent the Mercedes Benz from being towed."

 

That man then got into a grey Mitsubishi Outlander SUV and drove it around the block before returning at a "high rate of speed," police say.

 

By this time, officers had parked a police cruiser on the roadway to prevent the SUV from blocking a tow truck.

 

"Although the road conditions at the time were poor due to snow and ice conditions the male continued to attempt to reposition his vehicle by driving on the sidewalk and across a lawn at an unsafe speed," the news release reads.

 

Police say they were able to "safely secure the vehicle."

 

Both men were arrested and are now facing charges.
