An Ottawa man is facing charges of dangerous driving and fleeing from police after an incident in Gatineau.
The Sûreté du Québec says they stopped a speeding motorcyclist on Highway 50 near Maloney Boulevard around 8 p.m. Wednesday, but when police approached, he took off, reaching speeds of more than 160 kilometres per hour.
The chase ended a short time later at the interchange with Highway 5, when the man lost control of his bike; he wasn't injured.
The 27-year-old is due to appear in court again in September.
His licence has been suspended for a week and he's been fined almost $1,200.
