Photo Radar Box Shooter Is Back In Custody

LETHBRIDGE:  Regional Police have arrested 43-year old Adolf Reimer. He's  accused of fleeing police September 7th, after he was caught breaching release conditions imposed for shooting a photo radar box.

Reimer showed up at the Regional Hospital Sunday and was admitted to the psychiatric ward.  He was arrested  Tuesday when he was discharged and charged with breaching a recognizance,  resisting arrest, dangerous driving and two counts of assaulting a Peace Officer with a weapon, in relation to the September 7th incident. Reimer made a brief court appearance on Tuesday and was remanded in custody until his next court appearance October 5th.

On September 1st, Reimer pleaded guilty to shooting a photo radar box February 14th, in an incident where a 12-year boy received minor injuries from a stray bullet. It was revealed in court that Reimer fired three shots at the unit, after it caught him driving 111-kmph in a 60-kmph zone while his license was suspended. 

A pre-sentence report on the Photo Radar shooting was to be prepared and Reimer was to be sentenced November 24th. However, on September 7th, Regional police were tipped off that Reimer had breached his conditions and they went to his home to investigate. Reimer was seen running to a parked vehicle and a detective tried to prevent him from leaving, by leaning into the open passenger widow of the vehicle. Reimer started the car and drove away, endangering the detective.

The car Reimer was driving, was seen traveling at a high rate of speed, south-bound on Highway-5 past the airport. There was no pursuit but area police detachments and border crossings were notified.  An arrest warrant was issued for Reimer and he had been on the run until showing up at the hospital.
