On Friday, June 25, 2021, Prince Rupert RCMP were conducting traffic control for a previous matter along Highway 16 at Butze Creek Rapids.
A black Honda Civic exited the line of stopped traffic and accelerated rapidly toward a police officer that was conducting traffic control. The officer jumped off the road way and narrowly avoided being struck by the car.
The vehicle fled from the scene at a high rate of speed, driving dangerously, putting the public at risk. Terrace RCMP, including BC Highway Patrol and Frontline Officers, set up spike belts at the Shames River Bridge in an attempt to stop the vehicle.
The vehicle appeared to experience mechanical issues, and stopped suddenly on the highway near Kasiks Wilderness Resort and the Exchamsiks River. Police removed the driver, who refused to exit the vehicle. The driver resisted arrest, fought with police, during which, an officer was assaulted.

- Assaulting a Peace Officer Sec 270.01 Criminal Code of Canada
