A police dog managed to take down a suspect in Nanaimo last night, but not before the man rammed a stolent truck into several police vehicles in his attempt to get away.
Last night about 8:45, the suspect attempted to flee a property on Aulds Road.
He rammed a police cruiser several times, then hit a canine unit vehicle and managed to leave the property.
Within moments he was located and blocked in a different property, he again tried to smash his way out but failed.
RCMP Sgt. Sheryl Armstrong says officers were forced to respond.
“The suspect was still not listening to commands of the police officers.
So a police dog was deployed the driver was taken into custody.
But he sustained a small bite wound on his thigh I believe he was taken to hospital where he was treated and then returned to police custody.”
26 year old Jordan Plamondon is well known to police and is facing several charges including three counts of assault of a police officer.
The three police vehicles sustained tens of thousands of dollars in damage.
Two are inoperable.
