Kamloops This Week

Charges have been laid against a 29-year-old North Thompson man in connection with a highway chase last month that included the ramming of a police vehicle.

Joshua Real Charles Foucault is facing charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, flight from police, assaulting a police officer with a weapon and breach of probation.

According to Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Jodi Shelkie, the incident began when a police officer attempted to pull over a white SUV near Heffley Creek on Nov. 22.

“The driver refused to stop and drove recklessly before driving into the passenger side of a police car,” she said. “The vehicle then sped away.”

The SUV was found abandoned the following day, Shelkie said, and a suspect was identified.

Shelkie said Foucault was arrested without incident in Barriere on Monday.

He was slated to appear in Kamloops provincial court for a bail hearing on Tuesday.
