Jarrett Scanie has been sentenced to 7 months following an high speed police pursuit, the 19 year old initiated on October 15th, 2015. Police attempted to conduct a traffic stop when they believed Scanie, who was operating the vehicle, was impaired. Scanie refused to stop the vehicle he was driving and led police on a 30 minute chase through quad trails and fields.
The chase eventually ended in Cold Lake First Nations. Police were able to stop the vehicle using a tire deflating device; however, Scanie fled the vehicle and continued fleeing from the police on foot. Police were able to apprehend Scanie, arrest, and charge him with Impaired Driving, Dangerous Driving, Drive while Disqualified and Fail to Stop. He was also charged with Possession of Stolen Property, Resist Arrest and Breach of Recognizance.
On December 16th, 2015, Scanie was sentenced to 7 months jail-time on four charges; which include, operating a vehicle while being pursued by police, resisting arrest, theft under $5000, and impaired operation of a motor vehicle while over the legal limit. Scanie has also been sentenced to one-year driving prohibition for the impaired operation of a motor vehicle charge.
