Police spotted the vehicle at around 4 a.m. in the area of Charles Street and Aikins Avenue. The driver didn’t stop and led police westbound on Portage before losing control.

Four people inside fled on foot, but were arrested a short distance away with the help of the K-9 unit. Police found two loaded guns inside.

Four men face numerous criminal charges and remain in custody.
