A Kitchener man faces charges after trying to flee from police in Guelph.

While on patrol last night around 9:00 p.m., officers saw a vehicle driving suspiciously and tried to pull the car over.

Instead of slowing down, the vehicle accelerated. After a brief police chase, officers backed off for public safety.

Shortly after that same vehicle was involved in a crash at Woodlawn and the Hanlon Parkway.

The driver got out of the vehicle and tried to run away on foot, but officers caught up to the man and arrested him.

The 20-year-old faces multiple charges including flight from police, and possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking.
