RCMP members from Redcliff responded and stopped the vehicle travelling westbound on Highway 1 near Box Springs Road. The driver of the vehicle stopped due to a flat tire, immediately exited his vehicle and approached the driver of another vehicle parked close by and attempted to forcefully remove the driver of the vehicle from his vehicle. When RCMP members from the Redcliff Detachment approached the driver of the fleeing vehicle to prevent the attempted robbery, the drive refused to cooperate. After much struggle the driver of the fleeing vehicle was placed under arrest. No injuries were reported.
Daniel Joseph Landry of Coquitlam BC has been charged with: attempted robbery, fail to remain at the accident scene, dangerous driving, assaulting a Police Officer, resisting arrest, and attempting to disarm a Police Officer.
Landry will be appearing in Medicine Hat Provincial Court on July 5, 2016.
