OPP  Motorcycle Driving Aggressively Driver Charged Criminally

Central Elgin, On - On June 26, 2019 around 4:45 p.m. the Elgin County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) responded to a report of a sports motorcycle driving aggressively and passing unsafely on Wellington Road near St. George Street.

Officers located this motorcycle around John Wise Line and Sunset Road at which time the motorcycle failed to stop for police. It again aggressively sped away and passed numerous vehicles unsafely. Police did not pursue and used alternatives such as having other officers in the area.

Police located the same motorcycle in the Village of Port Stanley. The driver was arrested after driving towards a police officer that was on foot.

23-year-old Yousef MAHMOUD of London, Ontario has been charged with:

  • Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
  • Flight from peace officer
  • Assault a peace officer with a weapon

The accused was later released with a court date on July 30th, 2019 in St. Thomas Criminal Court.

The OPP is urging all road users to practice patience this long weekend. Aggressive driving is one of the fatal four driving behaviours that are claiming lives on our roadways.

The OPP will be focusing on aggressive driving throughout the Canada Day long weekend.
