Trek through Brampton with flashing police lights nets plenty of charges against Mississauga driver
A driver racing through Brampton pretending to be a cop with flashing red and blue lights couldn't out-race the long-arm of the real law.
According to Caledon OPP, the driver was headed north on Highway 410 around 11:30 p.m. on January 23 at a high rate of speed when an officer spotted him near Valleywood Blvd and Hurontario St., just north of Snelgrove.
According to police, the driver was using the fake lights to get other drivers to move out of his way as he sped along.
When the car was pulled over, the officer found two flashing light bars in the car, among other items.
As a result, a 20-year-old man from Mississauga faces several charges.
The man, whose name has not been released by police, is charged with control of a vehicle with cannabis readily available, driving a vehicle with cannabis in an open bag, failing to surrender a licence, permit and insurance, and unauthorized use of red and blue lights
