A 22-year-old man has been sentenced to an additional four months in jail and a two-year driving ban in in relation to a domestic assault in Abbotsford in April that ended with a police pursuit and a collision.
Daniel Staples-Taylor was sentenced Aug. 24 in Abbotsford provincial court on three charges to which he previously pleaded guilty: assault causing bodily harm, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and fleeing from a peace officer.
Charges of assault with a weapon, uttering threats and kidnapping were stayed.
Following his jail term, Staples-Taylor will be placed on two years of probation.
He has been in custody since his arrest on April 4.
On that day, police received reports at 12:20 p.m. that a woman was being assaulted in the 33300 block of Hawthorne Avenue.
Witnesses further reported that a man was dragging the victim into a car, a 2005 Chevy Malibu.
As police arrived on the scene, the car sped off. Police followed in pursuit, deployed a spike belt near Townline Road and Wheel Avenue, and boxed in the suspect vehicle, which then collided with a police truck.
Staples-Taylor was arrested at the scene and taken into custody. Police said he had numerous outstanding warrants.
