Police pursuit on Highway 1 ends with spike strip, arrest in Metro Vancouver


Police say they have a man in custody after a police pursuit through the Fraser Valley and into Metro Vancouver.


Surrey RCMP say they received a report of an assault of a person by a man driving a white BMW sedan.

An officer in Chilliwack later pulled the vehicle over and the driver stopped, but the RCMP say the vehicle reversed into a police vehicle and fled.

Police say they chased the vehicle along Highway 1 through Chilliwack, Abbotsford and into Langley because they believed the victim of the assault was still inside the sedan.

The Mounties say they eventually used a spike belt across the highway to stop the vehicle.

A passenger in the car was found safe and the police say the driver remains in custody and was due to appear court on Friday.
