Impaired driving suspect flees police

Police believe a man may have been impaired when he took police on a chase across north Edmonton Tuesday morning.

At around 3:00am, officers signalled a vehicle at 132nd Avenue and 117th Street to pull over, but the driver decided to make a break for it instead.

Air one was able to follow it until St. Albert, where the man jumped out and hid in some bushes. The K-9 unit was called in, and he was arrested shortly after.

He could be facing charges of criminal flight from police, and impaired driving.
