Suspect arrested for impaired driving and assault after foot chase 

A 29-year-old man is facing multiple charges, including impaired driving and assault, following a foot pursuit. 

Shortly after 6 p.m. on January 23, 2024, the Windsor Police Service received several complaints after a motorist struck a fence in the 1200 block of Central Ave. When officers arrived, the motorist refused to stop and sped away erratically. In the interest of public safety, officers didn’t pursue the vehicle.

Through investigation, officers learned the motorist also assaulted a homeowner who confronted him about his damaged fence. The homeowner sustained non-life-threatening injuries. 

A short time later, officers located the suspect’s vehicle at a residence in the 1200 block of Tourangeau Rd. Upon seeing the officers, the suspect attempted to run away but was apprehended after a brief foot chase. 

Kayle Patrick-Benoit, of Windsor, is charged with the following:

Dangerous operation of a motor vehicle
Impaired operation of motor vehicle 
Failing to remain at the scene of a collision

Patrick-Benoit was also arrested on outstanding warrants not related to this incident.
