Wild video shows alleged drunk driver trying to evade cops in Brampton
Peel Police have arrested an alleged drunk driver in a wild exchange caught on video in Brampton around 3 p.m. on Thursday afternoon.
A video circulating on social media shows the driver of a white Jeep attempting to flee from police near the intersection of Chinguacousy and Drinkwater, crashing into a tree, a hydro pole and another vehicle, all in the span of just a few seconds.

Saw that guy today. Driving on the sidewalk to pass stopped cars so he could run a light that had been red for a while. pic.twitter.com/MJT6Y4YAEG— JC (@JoCro42) September 23, 2022
A second clip shows the aftermath, with a group of Peel Police squad cars clustered around the alleged drunk driver's vehicle. Roughly 1:35 into the clip, a man wearing jeans, work boots and a camo jacket is led away from the scene in handcuffs.
