A traffic stop turned into a kayak chase in the Shuswap area.
An RCMP officer had pulled over a vehicle early yesterday morning when the vehicle rammed his cruiser.
The suspect drove off to Mara Lake, and got into a kayak at the water’s edge.
Police say it appears he then paddled away using only his hands.
They picked him up a short while later on the other side of the lake, suffering from hypothermia in a garage.
Justin Daniels, 35, faces several charges, including flight from police.
