Longest Police Chase In Ontario History [VIDEO]

Police in Southern Ontario have released a video of what they believe to be the “longest police helicopter pursuit in Ontario history.” The chase began around in the early morning hours Jan. 27, and ended an hour and a half later when the driver’s car hit police tire spikes northwest of Port Hope, Ont. The suspect was followed for a total of 154 km through Peterborough and eventually back toward Durham Region. Video of the chase shows the suspect flee the vehicle into a wooded area, before he was caught and arrested a short while later. Police vehicles and a helicopter followed the suspect eastbound on Highway 401 where the man drove as fast as 230 kilometres per hour at times.  The 47 year old man was eventually charged with eight offences, including criminal harassment, driving while under suspension and possession of MDMA, cocaine and heroin for the purpose of trafficking.
