Quesnel RCMP have laid charges in an early October incident in the city’s downtown.
According to Sgt. Clay Kronebusch, “one man is being charged after fleeing from police and putting public at risk” during an incident on Oct. 1 at about 3 a.m. When Quesnel RCMP attempted to conduct a traffic stop with a vehicle on Barlow Avenue near Reid street in the downtown area of Quesnel, the situation escalated.
“The vehicle sped away at a high rate of speed, failing to stop at multiple stop signs,” Kronebusch said. “The police investigation was able to identify the driver of the vehicle. Charges have now been laid against a local 24-year-old man, Jackson Nickolet, for dangerous driving and failing to stop for police.”
Nickolet is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 19.
