NORTH RUSTICO - A Moncton man is facing charges of fleeing from police and impaired driving after an incident here Saturday evening.

Police attempted to stop a truck for speeding on Route 6 near North Rustico.

The truck did not stop immediately for police, but rather travelled approximately 500 meters before the driver turned into an unknown residence and ran from the truck.

An officer was able to make the arrest a short distance away in a field behind the house.

Police said the man will appear in court in September.

    Triple fines -triple jail time, triple length of suspensions ---- no matter if they are islanders, mla's or premiers --- one or two drinks is enough to make a person less responsible-----MAYBE ONE OR TWO or ten MORE AND I'LL STILL BE ABLE TO DRIVE !!!!

    He is not an MLA so he will get some jail time.

    Really. It should be taken very seriously. If someone gets killed , it will affect many.

    We have enough of our own impaired drivers endangering the lives of islanders, we do not need visitors to do the same.

    Hopefully he gets Douglas and will only have to do time served and get a suspended sentence.

      Hey ban Douglas maybe you should think before commenting, how can you get time served and a suspended sentence? They are 2 different decisions. Its either one or the other not both. If you are going to whine or complain about the legal system at least try to know what you are talking about.

    Hey , it looks like the people that visit us on PEI is getting the message from Judge Douglas that it's OK to drink - drive & flee police here in this province .

      That is exactly the message he sent when sentencing that MLA from away and exactly the opposite of what needs to be said on the subject. I would ask why should this guy get any worse? Because the first guy should have? Unfortunately that is not a valid reason. If this visitor has any lawyer worth a dollar or is of any sense he would not take any plea that included a harsher punishment since that is the precedent that has been set which should bring some shame to the judge involved. In fact no drunk driver also evading the police and commiting other moving violations at the time (at least no one who has no prior criminal record) should accept any jail time now (granted many do already have some record) but those who don’t should expect the same treatment as that visiting MLA. The judge should know that this is what he has said with his prior ruling.
