A 31-year-old man has been arrested after driving impaired and attacking a police officer, Sooke RCMP say.

Officers were called to a local pub on West Coast Road around midnight Saturday after reports of a person with a beer in his hand and avoiding patrons trying to prevent him from driving.

Police later located the man and arrested him. He became “increasingly aggressive” and kicked out the side window of the police car and grabbed the officer who was transporting him, police said.

RCMP Staff Sgt. Jeff McArthur said besides threatening the life of a police officer and a jail guard, the suspect threatened to burn down the police detachment.

Ryan William Bradbury, of Sooke, is facing several charges, including assaulting a police officer, three counts of uttering death threats and one count of mischief under $5,000.

He is scheduled to appear in provincial court May 19.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 250-642-5241 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at victoriacrimestoppers.com.
