KEMPTVILLE – A driver, who led police on a chase Wednesday night, has turned himself in.

Grenville County O.P.P. had tried to stop a suspicious vehicle near the Ferguson Forestry Center on County Road 44, when the driver in a Dodge Charger took off.

The driver later bailed and ran into the woods with a firearm, leaving two passengers and the vehicle behind.

Officers also found a shotgun and ammunition near the Dodge Charger.

The driver turned himself into police the next day.

A 20-year-old Ottawa man is now facing charges of careless use of a firearm, unauthorized possession of a firearm, dangerous driving, flight from police and possession of a loaded, prohibited or restriction weapon.

The accused will appear in a Kemptville court in October.
