A man from rural Manitoba has been arrested for allegedly trying to ram a police car while drunk behind the wheel of a school bus.
RCMP say they tried to stop the bus in La Riviere yesterday night. That’s southwest of the city, near Holiday Mountain Ski Resort.
Mounties say the driver pulled over to the wrong side of the road and tried to reverse into the cruiser car, but missed.
He tried to take off, then tried to ram the officer’s car again before eventually stopping and getting out.
There were no kids on the bus at the time and no one was hurt.
Joshua Pharoah, 35, is facing a list of charges including impaired driving and assault on a police officer with a weapon.
He’s due in court later this month.
