Man charged after Jeep aimed at officer during radar training exercise

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - A man from Lethbridge, Alta., is facing a long list of charges after allegedly driving a vehicle at a police officer.

Police in the southern Alberta city were conducting radar training with two recruits and a member of the Taber police force when they saw a speeding Jeep.

One of the recruits flagged for the driver to pull over while a second officer stepped into the road to get the driver to stop.

Police allege the driver instead sped up, forcing the officer on the road to jump out of the way.

The vehicle was later tracked down and found to have been stolen.

Kyle Wade Kohlman, 25, is charged with assaulting a police officer with a weapon, dangerous driving and flight from police, among other charges.
