Police have charged a man who allegedly ran a police cruiser off the road in Brampton.

Peel police allege that in the early morning hours of July 30, 2021, the accused was spotted operating a stolen vehicle in the Hurontario Street and County Court Boulevard area in Brampton. Police say the male made “intentional contact with a police cruiser, causing it to leave the roadway.”

On Nov. 29, 2022, police arrested Gauravdeep Singh and charged him with a number of offences, including theft of a motor vehicle, fleeing from a police officer and dangerous driving.

He was held for a bail hearing at the Ontario Court of Justice in Brampton.

“I want to thank your investigators and the support units that pursued this lengthy investigation to hold the accused accountable for their criminal and dangerous actions,” Peel Regional Police Deputy Chief, Marc Andrews, said in a news release.

“It is a miracle that there were no serious injuries in this incident as this individual attempted to harm our officers, who accept the inherent risks associated with their jobs to keep our community safe.”

The charges have not been proven in court.

Anyone who may have witnessed this collision or has video surveillance or dashcam footage of the incident is asked to contact the 22 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau at 905-453-2121, extension 2233.
