A 31-year-old Winnipeg man is in police custody after fleeing from officers Thursday and throwing aside a handgun in the process.
Corey Hart was pulled over in the area of the 400 block of Sherbrook Street at around 1:15 a.m. when police noticed him speeding in an erratic manner.
He fled on foot and attempted to climb a fence, throwing down a .22 calibre handgun and ammunition. He resisted arrest, but was eventually taken into custody.
Hart faces numerous weapons-related charges, as well as impaired driving, resisting arrest and failing to provide a breath sample.
