A 41-year-old driver is facing charges after a dangerous driving incident ended with a man barricaded inside a home on the east Mountain in Hamilton, Ont.
Police say the matter started around noon on Monday via tips from the public revealing a vehicle on King Street East near Centennial Parkway weaving dangerously through lanes including entering oncoming traffic.
Investigators say the black transport truck would later hit a vehicle on a Stoney Creek Mountain residential street with the driver making his way into a home near Lexington Avenue.
After barricading himself for several hours in the residence, the Hamilton-area man would be arrested around 6 p.m. with the help of negotiators.
He’s facing four charges in all including dangerous driving and assault with a weapon.
