TORONTO — A driver faces several criminal charges for allegedly knocking into a Toronto special constable with his car.
Police say the man was angry at being directed to go straight through a downtown intersection rather than make a turn.
They allege he disobeyed the direction and struck the traffic agent multiple times with his car.
The agent was not hurt.
The 19-year-old driver from Amaranth, Ont., faces charges of assault with a weapon, and assaulting a peace officer.
Police say any aggressive behaviour toward traffic agents won’t be tolerated.
