More charges for man accused of ramming Surrey police cars, injuring officers
A man accused of driving his truck into police cars and injuring two officers outside a Surrey RCMP detachment in January is now facing more charges.
James Burton Weaver, 47, was initially charged with two counts of criminal negligence causing bodily harm after the Jan. 27 incident outside the Newton detachment near 72 Avenue and 137 Street.
Following an appearance in Surrey Provincial Court last week, he is now facing two additional charges of assault causing bodily harm.
At the time of the incident, police alleged the suspect intentionally tried to hit RCMP members and/or their cars with a Ford Explorer.
A female officer was inside one police cruiser that was struck and sustained non-life-threatening injuries. A second male Mountie who was on foot was pinned between two cars, sustaining a minor leg injuries.
The driver of the Explorer was uninjured.
After a court appearance in January, Weaver's girlfriend told CTV he had recently gone off his medication for depression
His next court date is in December.
