THUNDER BAY -- The vehicle driven by Tyler Boily when he was arrested by city police officers earlier this week was allegedly stolen.

The 32-year-old appeared in court on Wednesday, where a charge of possession of stolen property over $5,000 was added to the counts of dangerous driving, assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest and possession of dangerous weapons that had already been filed.

Boily, who pleaded guilty to two counts of dangerous driving causing death for the fatal 2014 crash on the Thunder Bay Expressway that killed Michelle Parker and Daniel Brooks, was arrested by Thunder Bay police early Tuesday morning after a vehicle was observed driving erratically in the area of Arthur and May streets.

When the vehicle stopped, Boily allegedly brandished a knife and attempted to flee from pursuing officers before he pulled out a hammer and took a swing at one of the officers. Other weapons were said to have been seized from the vehicle.

The charges laid as a result of Tuesday's alleged incident have not been tested in court.

Boily was sentenced to five years in federal prison after making the guilty plea in May 2015, though after factoring in credit for time spent in pre-sentence custody he had 40 months remaining. The sentence also included a 10-year driving prohibition and a decade-long weapons ban.
