Montreal Police crackdown on Impaired Driving

Montreal police shoot drunk-driving suspect in Pointe St. Charles

A routine call about a car accident in the Point last night ended up with a man in his 30s being shot by police. Just before 8 last night, police were called about a man driving erratically and hitting some parked cars along a street in the Point. When the cops arrived at the corner of Frank Selke and Charon streets, a scuffle ensued between the man and the officers, and that's when he was shot in the back.

Witnesses say he appeared drunk when police caught up with him.

He's now in critical condition in hospital, but is expected to live.

The two officers, both of them female, were also taken to hospital for treatment of injuries sustained in the melee.


...........I guess the driver made these cops MADD

This makes me question whether two female officers should be on their own. Police often come across strong men that two male officers have trouble handling. If they could have subdued him there would have been no need for shooting. I think if two officers aren't positive they can subdue a suspect they should back off and call for back up. Anyway, he'll wake up in hospital and say, "Call the police, I've been shot."           Ed
