Si­ca­mous, B.C.: The RCMP have rec­om­mended more than two dozen charges against a man who tried to run from po­lice us­ing a kayak fol­low­ing a rou­tine traf­fic stop near Si­ca­mous. Moun­ties say 35-year-old Justin Daniels put a pick-up truck he was driv­ing in re­verse and rammed a po­lice cruiser that had pulled him over be­fore driv­ing away early Mon­day morn­ing. Of­fi­cers from Salmon Arm lo­cated the ve­hi­cle aban­doned along nearby Mara Lake and fol­lowed foot­prints in the snow to the wa­ter’s edge, where the driver launched a kayak us­ing his hands in­stead of a pad­dle. Po­lice then found tracks in the snow on the far side of the lake and fol­lowed them to a nearby garage, where they found and ar­rested Daniels. They say he was suf­fer­ing from hy­pother­mia but was oth­er­wise un­in­jured. Daniels faces mul­ti­ple charges, in­clud­ing theft for steal­ing a kayak, as­sault, dan­ger­ous op­er­a­tion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle, break and en­ter and 19 counts of mail theft.
