Yesterday, Bracebridge OPP made an arrest following a case where a motorist fled a RIDE check.

Police were conducting a RIDE Program on Medora St at Ferndale Rd in Muskoka Lakes on December 9th when a vehicle approached and stopped to speak with officers as directed. The officer requested the driver to pull to the side while he conducted further investigation into his ability to drive and the driver fled the area causing officers to take action to avoid the vehicle.

Officers continued their investigation into the incident and on Friday, they arrested and charged 34 year-old Alex Vanderjagt of Muskoka Lakes Twp with Dangerous Driving, Obstruct Peace Officer and Failing to Stop for Police.

He will appear in a Bracebridge Court on February 7, 2023 to answer to his charges.
