What started out as a traffic accident on King near Bay turned into a police takedown.
Hamilton police were called yesterday morning to investigate a crash but the car was
pulled over by armed police near Caroline.
An eyewitness says he saw several police officers and at least one had his weapon drawn.
A black sedan with Illinois plates had eluded police at the initial crash but it was surrounded by cruisers at Caroline.
The investigation caused a traffic nightmare in the downtown but it was finally
reopened by about 2:30 yesterday afternoon.
Witnesses say the man, in his 40's, was taken away by ambulance but there are no
other details as yet.
