Roadside arrest

 Penticton RCMP officers Const. Matt Noel (right) and Const. Mark Hanna take a woman into custody on Eastside Road after she failed to stop when police attempted to pull her over. A detachment spokesman said the woman believed because of her “sovereign” status she was not required to stop or be in possession of a valid driver’s licence. She was charged with both failing to stop and driving without a licence.  - Mark Brett/Western News
