Toronto police have charged a man for allegedly clotheslining a motorcyclist and causing a crash.
Police say the alleged offence occurred last week, when a man supposedly found a piece of wire, tied one end to a pole on the side of Queen Street and held the other end, tightening it when a motorcyclist approached. This supposedly hauled the rider off the bike, although there have been no reports of injury yet.
Police charged 45-year-old Phillip Gaudet of Toronto with assault with a weapon, mischief-endanger life and fail to comply with recognizance after the alleged incident. No other details, including a supposed motive, have been released.
