On September 12, 2015 at approximately 8:25 p.m., members of the Winnipeg Police Service were engaged in the RoadWatch program on Waverley Street near Lake Crest Road when an officer encountered a male operating a Buick Century.

The officer commenced a conversation with the driver which resulted in an Alcohol Screening Device (ASD) being administered. Once the test was completed, it was determined that the driver had failed.

It was at this time, the driver sped off while the officer made efforts to stop the suspect from fleeing. The officer was dragged along the roadway causing non-life threatening injuries.
