A 21-year-old from Calgary has been arrested and charged following a police car ramming incident on Wednesday.

Joshua Wyllie was allegedly behind the wheel of a stolen Ford F-350 when police officers noticed the suspicious vehicle in a southwest Calgary parking lot at around 8:45 pm.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, when officers approached the vehicle, they saw a citizen waving them over roughly 30 feet away from the truck. When officers pulled up to speak to the citizen, it was clear that the truck was driving on a collision course with the police vehicle.

Although police tried to drive out of the way – after alerting the citizen to move somewhere safer – the truck managed to hit the police vehicle before coming to a stop a short way away.

Wyllie was arrested without incident, and has since been charged with “two counts of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon and one count each of possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, assault with a weapon, driving while disqualified, possession of methamphetamine, failing to comply with a probation order, driving an uninsured motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle with an unauthorized licence plate,” according to the release.

He will next appear in court on Tuesday, January 16.
