WEST KELOWNA - RCMP had to use the emergency response team to arrest a prohibited driver in West Kelowna this afternoon.

The 37-year-old man was arrested after he fled from police in his vehicle, Kelowna RCMP say in a press release. Officers tried to stop the man a number of times.

West Kelowna RCMP then obtained an arrest warrant and with the help of the South East District emergency response team, arrested the man at a residence in the 1000 block of Caledonia Way.

Police say he was taken into custody without incident and faces charges of dangerous operation of a motor vehicle under the Criminal Code and two charges of driving while prohibited under the Motor Vehicle Act.

The unidentified man will be held in custody until a court appearance tomorrow, Dec. 17.
