Phone filmed 185 km/h joyride
A video of dangerous driving was posted to social media, letting RCMP nab a suspect.
Several traffic offences were caught on tape in the video, posted Sept. 25.
RCMP have arrested Sheldon Karl Skulmoski, 43, and charged him with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, various Highway Traffic Act offences, failing to use a seatbelt and distracted driving.
“Our officers have many ways to investigate criminal offences and those include monitoring activities and postings on public sites and social media.” said Sgt. Bert Paquet of the Manitoba RCMP. “The total disregard for public safety is what ultimately led to criminal charges being laid in this case.”
Skulmoski has been released, with conditions, pending a Nov. 4 court date.
