KELOWNA - A Kelowna man with five outstanding warrants is facing new charges after a kerfluffle with police Tuesday evening.
Mounties set out to arrest the 43-year-old who they believed was likely avoiding police. They tracked him down May 27 to a problem house on the 2400 block of Charolais Road but he wasn't there when they arrived. Moments later officers spotted him driving past in a pickup truck. They say he hit the gas to speed away, but soon abandoned the truck, running into the trouble house.
A police service dog was brought in to help track the man, who was found hiding in the crawlspace below the house.
David Andrew Bellefontaine was arrested and charged with obstruction, flight from police and uttering threats for threatening to kill the police dog. He remains in custody and is scheduled to appear in court May 28.
