Meanwhile, the would-be thief who had been on the run from police over a hit-and-run since March 19 led police on a wild chase which ended when he crashed his van. He was taken to a hospital with serious injuries and has been charged with numerous offences.
While Brandon will also pursue charges against the man, he discourages other riders from doing what he did, unless they have self-defence training.
“Just take a step back; let them take it,” he said. “You can replace your vehicle, you can’t replace your life.”
