THUNDER BAY – Police stopped a 12-year-old driver motoring around town with friends, the most bizarre incident on a busy Halloween weekend for local law enforcement officials.
“An investigation into how this occurred is continuing,” said acting traffic Sgt. Bill Pollock said in a release issued by police on Monday afternoon.
A police officer had to seek treatment of injuries at hospital – though wasn’t admitted and will be OK – after a liquor-related offence resulted in a suspect being taken into custody for resisting arrest.
It was also a busy weekend on the crash front, with 27 collisions requiring police assistance.
“Luckily, none resulted in any serious injuries,” Pollock said.
Additionally, five drivers were arrested for impaired driving. Police also pulled over a driver found to possess a suspended licence.
Police also reported one bail violation after the person in question was found out after curfew, and stopped one G1 licensed driver who was not accompanied by a properly licensed driver.
