‘Grand Theft Auto’ in the GTA? Gentleman tries to hijack vehicles on highway

We’re rarely the initially to make Grand Theft Car-slash-Bigger Toronto Spot jokes, but the comparison is just way too apt, right here.

At 2:30 pm January 13 in Burlington, Ontario, just west of Toronto, law enforcement tried using to apprehend a automobile relocating at a high fee of speed in a residential space in the east close of the town.

The driver took off, but was spotted soon just after heading westbound on the QEW at Walkers Line, reaching speeds of close to 180 km/h. He took to the shoulder, and was weaving in and out of visitors.

Prior to law enforcement could capture up, the driver reportedly stopped his car in the centre westbound lane approaching the Skyway Bridge and got out, clogging and dodging 4 lanes of stay traffic — need to we mention the two and 3 lanes of merging targeted visitors at this bend in the semi-truck-laden roadway?

What to do? Why, he crossed the median on foot, of study course, and commenced attempting to hijack (allegedly, of course) vehicles in the eastbound lanes by very first, seeking to get them to end, and then tugging on their doorway handles. A 43-yr-old Burlington person was apprehended soon after a short foot chase “without more incident,” according to the report. But truly. How a lot of additional incidents could he have added? He was billed with:

  • Flight From Law enforcement
  • Hazardous Operation
  • Breach of Probation
  • Breach of Launch Get
  • Possession of a Managed Substance
