A motorcylist tried in vain to evade city police last night when they responded to a complaint about a motorcycle being driven dangerously along Sand Cove Road.
The motorcyclist raced away with the front wheel in the air but was seen later by police. Sergeant Chuck Breen says he tried to race away again but crashed onto a front lawn along Driscoll Drive. Police also tell us he narrowly missed two people who were out walking before he crashed.
Police later discovered the 24 year old man also had on him a set of brass knuckles which is against the law.
