Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a resident of Caledon following an altercation involving a Town of Caledon by-law officer.
On September 16, 2021, at approximately 5:30 p.m., officers responded to an incident that occurred on Bonnieglen Farm Boulevard. Information was received that a Town of Caledon by-law officer had been followed in his patrol vehicle by the driver of a vehicle he had just issued a parking ticket to. The male driver was driving in an aggressive and dangerous manner, and eventually forced the by-law vehicle to come to a stop, at which point the male exited his vehicle and proceeded to threaten the officer.
As a result of the police investigation, Harmanpreet CHIMA, 21, of Caledon, has been charged with:
• Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
