Hot beverage thrown at OPP officer at traffic stop
Provincial police say they began investigating last month after hearing from other law enforcement agencies that drugs were being imported in vehicles shipped to Canada by rail.
A Brant County OPP officer had “a full cup of hot tea” thrown in his face by a driver he had pulled over, police say.
According to the OPP, the officer pulled the driver over on Blossom Avenue – just outside Brantford – last week after tracking her vehicle at more than 120 km/h.
That speed represents more than triple the speed limit, as Blossom is in a 40 km/h zone.
A 48-year-old woman from Norfolk County now faces charges of assaulting police and racing.
