Police arrest driver 'doing doughnuts' on Alberni highway

Jan 19 2012

An intoxicated driver, doing doughnuts on the Alberni Highway, ended his joyride in the back of a police car.

Oceanside RCMP received a report around 9 p.m. that a car had crashed in the 100 block of the highway.

Witnesses had seen the driver of a 1996 Dodge pickup driving in an erratic manner and "doing doughnuts" before he lost control and smashed into a hydro pole, RCMP said.

The man fled the scene, but police found him a short distance away.

The 36-year-old Nanoose man was arrested for drunk driving and faces criminal charges.
