Lake Country officer makes arrest while off duty
An off-duty member of the Lake Country RCMP went above and beyond the call of duty.
On April 6 at around 6:45 p.m., an officer was on his way home from work in his personal vehicle when he was passed by a black Audi in an erratic and dangerous manner.
"The Audi got stuck in traffic and the RCMP officer caught up to him near the landfill (on Glenmore Road)," said Cst. Kris Clark, RCMP spokesperson.
"The driver of the Audi pulled into the parking lot of the dog park there and a passenger, who the RCMP member recognized as a prolific offender, exited and approached a GMC Terrain."
The 23-year-old Kelowna man was known to have an outstanding warrant and, despite being off duty, the police officer stopped and made the arrest.
"Back up arrived and the man was taken into custody," said Clark.
Nathan Fahl remains in custody and is set to appear in court by video April 24.
He has been charged with assault with a weapon, driving while disqualified, possession of stolen property and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
