It took a spike belt to get a drunk-driving suspect off the road Sunday night.
Police first tried to stop the driver on Tranquille Road at about 10 p.m. when he was spotted driving erratically, Kamloops RCMP said Monday.
He sped off, but was found on the Summit Connector. As officers brought the vehicle to a stop, the driver again took off.
He blew past a road block on McGill Road, but was stopped by a spike belt at a second road block.
"The spike belt took out three of the tires, resulting in the vehicle stopping and the driver being arrested without further incident," Cpl. Cheryl Bush said.
A 24-year-old man faces charges of impaired driving and failing to comply with a probation order.
"The male has a lengthy criminal record and will be appearing in court later today."
