Piikani Nation RCMP have requested public assistance to locate Shaine Smith, 33, of Lundbreck. He has a history of fleeing from police and operating a motor vehicle in a dangerous manner, and is bound by a Canada-wide driving prohibition.

A Piikani RCMP officer attempted to stop Smith on April 24, at about 1:45 p.m., and he fled at excessive speeds.

Smith was located a second time and RCMP say he intentionally drove at the RCMP cruiser, swerving at the last second before colliding with the officer.

His disregard for others on the road is a large concern for RCMP.
