Repentigny cop suspended 15 days for 'reckless' driving

The Quebec police ethics committee is suspending officer Marc-André Urèche for 15 days without pay after he injured five people while responding to an emergency call.

The committee found Urèche in violation of the ethics code by which all Quebec officers must abide.

According to the ethics report, in October 2016, Urèche and his patrol partner, Kevin Laprade, responded to an emergency call about a hooded man carrying a handgun and biking around the residential area of Charlemagne.

The report says the duo rushed to the scene along Highway 40. In an attempt to get to the man faster, Urèche exited the highway by driving the opposite way on the Pierre-Le Gardeur entrance ramp.
