A Durham Regional Police officer has been charged with street racing two weeks after his vehicle was pulled over in Ajax.
Givelas was off duty and driving his personal car when he was pulled over just before 5 a.m. on March 9 as he drove eastbound on Taunton Rd. near Westney Rd.
Selby would not confirm the speed at which the car was clocked when it was pulled over.
However, to warrant a racing charge, Selby said it would have been observed travelling at least 50 km/h over the posted limit of 80 km/h on that roadway
Givelas was at one time a traffic services branch sergeant. Selby would not give his age or number of years with the force, describing him only as a ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“veteran.ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â
He has been transferred to a job in a different division pending the outcome of the charges.
ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Å“ItÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s normal protocol to make sure everythingÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚â„¢s above board on the case,ÃƒÂ¢Ã‚â‚¬Ã‚Â said Selby.
Givelas is scheduled to appear in court in late April.
