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.
