According to the RNC, the driver refused to stop and continued east on Blackmarsh Road, where the vehicle ran into a snowbank and struck a pole. The single male occupant ran from the vehicle but was located in the Frecker Driver area of St. John's by members of the RNC's patrol unit and K-9 unit. The incident occurred around 2 a.m.

The suspect was also charged under the Highway Traffic Act with operating a motor vehicle with no licence and under the Liquor Control Act for having open liquor in a vehicle. He was held for a court appearance, and his vehicle was impounded.

Police say damage to the vehicle was moderate.

Also early Thursday, around 12:58 a.m., a 25-year-old man was arrested and charged with mischief in connection with complaints from a residence in the west end of St. John's.

RNC officers responded to reports that a man was repeatedly disturbing occupants by knocking at the door. After being warned by police, the RNC said the man left the area only to return a short time later and continue his behavior.

The man was held in custody until a court appearance.
