A Guelph man is accused of dangerous driving and other offences after allegedly hitting a bylaw officer who was trying to give him a parking ticket.

Guelph police say it happened around 5:30 p.m. Friday, near Wyndham and Cork streets.

They saw the driver noticed the bylaw officer preparing a ticket and accelerated his vehicle, hitting the officer in the process. The officer required hospital treatment for their injuries.

The 25-year-old man was later arrested at a residence on Gordon Street, although he allegedly tried to resist the officers’ efforts.

In addition to dangerous driving, he has been charged with assault with a weapon, resisting arrest and failing to remain at the scene of a collision.
