That incident last night in which a U-Haul rental truck smashed into the front door of the Cochrane OPP detachment has resulted in three criminal charges against the driver.
The 45-year-old man from Mississippi Mills, about 50 kilometres southwest of Ottawa, is up on one charge of driving while prohibited, and two charges related to causing bodily harm.
A member of the public who was in the front lobby of the building was seriously hurt.
The driver is in police custody at least until a court appearance tomorrow.
Officers from the Cochrane detachment are still responding to calls. Anyone looking for a criminal record check is being redirected to the Iroquois Falls detachment. It’s in Monteith, just off Highway 11.
