A man faces at least two charges after an incident where it’s alleged he drove a vehicle into Lakelse Lake last weekend.

David Wallis made his first court appearance today and was charged with dangerous driving and taking vehicle without owner’s consent.

His case was put over until July 2 and he will remain in custody until then.

from the original story posted in the morning of June 30:

A MAN is due in Terrace provincial court today following a June 27 incident in which a vehicle was driven into Lakelse Lake at the Lakelse Lake Provincial Park Furlong Bay Campground.

Police say they first responded to a disturbance complaint at the campground at 4:30 a.m. that day and after attempting to stop a vehicle of interest did not pursue the vehicle for public safety reasons.

“A search of the area located a man, believed to be the person driving the vehicle that failed to stop for police, swimming in the lake after driving the vehicle into the water,” a police report indicated.

Police say their investigation involves impaired driving coupled with other motor vehicle-related offences.

The man taken into custody was remanded leading up to a court appearance today.

Exact charges have yet to be released.

Volunteers from Terrace Search and Rescue were also at the scene and found the vehicle more than 60 metres from the end of the boat launch.

Items from the vehicle found floating were turned over to the RCMP.
