Nanaimo RCMP detachment parking lot.
Several Nanaimo RCMP officers were lucky not to be hurt after a bizarre incident in their own detachment parking lot this morning.
About 8:30 am, a driver entered the rear parking lot, accelerated into a garbage dumpster, knocking it sideways and narrowly missing two officers on foot.
The car then hit a police vehicle with three other officers inside.
There were no injuries.
The driver was arrested at taken to hospital as a precaution.
At this time it is unknown what may have prompted this action.
The investigation is ongoing.
