This Lamborghini was impounded by police on July 20 according to Randy Scott.

A man tied to an infamous Vancouver Island speeding video appears to have had a run-in with Victoria’s top cop.

Randy Scott tells CHEK a Lamborghini Gallardo was pulled over by Victoria Police Department Chief Del Manak July 20. He claims the unmarked vehicle pulled up sideways “blocking the intersection” and was yelling to “pull over” without any lights on. He also claims he was not the driver of the Italian sports car.

The vehicle was impounded and a ticket was issued for excessive speed.

VicPD confirmed with CHEK that Manak pulled a vehicle over on the Patrica Bay Highway on July 20 for excessive speed and that he was not on duty at the time.”He was off-duty, but in his VicPD issued vehicle which has emergency equipment. Once the driver of that vehicle stopped, chief Manak called for officers in the local jurisdiction – Sidney North Saanich RCMP I believe – to attend. They took over the investigation at that point,” said the department in a statement.

VicPD did not disclose the identity of the driver, nor did they indicate how fast the vehicle was going or what kind of vehicle it was.

Scott has had a few encounters with Vancouver Island police for alleged speeding over the years.

In 2013, Scott was found not guilty of dangerous driving in a B.C. provincial court after a helmet camera video showing a motorcycle going 299 km/h on the Trans-Canada Highway was posted online and went viral.

Scott was also linked to another Lamborghini that police spotted speeding on the Trans-Canada Highway in 2015. At the time, Scott claimed he wasn’t driving and accused the police of unfairly targetting him following his acquittal in 2013.

He is also the same man who pleaded guilty in provincial court to feeding bears along the Alaska Highway in 2016. At the time, a Facebook user with the name Randy Scott posted photos showing someone feeding bears Timbits along the highway.
