The man who hit a Sûreté du Québec biker police officer on May 1 in the metropolis has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, hit and run, dangerous driving and possession of drugs.

On May 1, 26-year-old Christopher Desrosiers rammed a Sûreté du Québec motorcycle police officer using his vehicle and fled in northeast Montreal. The seriously injured officer was taken to hospital.

The policeman had tried to intercept him during a radar operation, on rue Armand-Chaput, near the intersection of boulevard Henri-Bourassa, in Rivière-des-Prairies, around 8 a.m.

Rather than stopping, the vehicle in question would have overturned the police officer and his motorcycle. The policeman was injured in the upper and lower body. Reinforcements then arrived. Mr. Desrosiers was arrested the same day and was interviewed by investigators.

The man is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault, hit and run, dangerous driving. He is also accused of having had in his possession cocaine, methamphetamine and cannabis.
