WIN­NIPEG — Po­lice have laid a dozen charges against a 24year-old man in the ram­ming of po­lice cars in front of Win­nipeg head­quar­ters. The charges against Wayne Daniel Ren­nie in­clude dan­ger­ous op­er­a­tion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle, mis­chief and two counts of as­sault­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer with a weapon. Po­lice al­lege Ren­nie was dis­pleased with a cell­phone ticket he’d been given on Mon­day morn­ing and de­lib­er­ately drove into the cars with his mov­ing truck be­fore flee­ing. They say he swerved into on­com­ing traf­fic on a high­way out­side city lim­its and drove to­wards a car with two Win­nipeg po­lice of­fi­cers in­side. They car had to swerve to avoid a head-on col­li­sion. Ren­nie was ar­rested near Portage la Prairie, about 80 kilo­me­tres west of Win­nipeg, and re­mains in cus­tody.
