A Buchanan man has made his first court appearance, after allegedly ramming a police cruiser near Canora.
Mounties say they conducted a traffic stop on Highway 5, west of the town, late Thursday night.
After initially pulling over, the suspect vehicle rammed the police vehicle twice.
The adult male driver and lone occupant then got out, carrying an axe, and struck the police vehicle while yelling threats.
34-year-old Kristopher Steenman faces 17 in charges in all, and was remanded into custody to appear in Yorkton Provincial Court again tomorrow (Tue).
