One driver turned a seemingly simple and distracted offensive into a possibly long list of costly charges after an ill-considered escape attempt on Thursday.
The drama began when the man was seen using his cell phone while traveling on the 10th Line Road in Orléans around 4 pm.
Police tracked him down the busy road and, according to protocol, took note of his registration numbers before approaching the car to inform the driver of the charges he might be facing.
According to police, he tried to flee, although his progress was hampered by heavy traffic and police were able to keep up with his progress.
The police found him shortly afterward, huddled by his car, parked behind the dumpster.
In a tweet, senior traffic officer Sgt. Mark Gatien said the man was facing "a lot of Part III" for his actions.
Part III tickets are a summons to appear before the courts to face allegations of a number of charges, including failure to stop for an official, stunt double, driving while in suspension, and other charges.
The man, who was not identified, would face a $ 615 fine, three demerit points and a three-day license suspension before fleeing. Part III costs can result in thousands of dollars in fines, suspension of licenses, and possibly arrest.
Police said the investigation was under way and no final decision was taken on the allegations.
