A young Weyburn woman, who's been in police custody since mid-December, has been released on bail. Twenty-one-year-old Destinee Klassen appeared in Weyburn Provincial Court on Tuesday. She was arrested for evading police in December, allegedly ramming a police cruiser and nearly running down an officer.

Klassen has been in police custody since her arrest on December 16. She has been released on bail and conditions to keep the peace and maintain good behaviour, being placed on house arrest with electronic monitoring.

"It's got nothing to do with the police, of course, unless you violate that but basically what it is is that if you're a candidate for electronic monitoring, Probation Services, who administers that program, you get fitted with the proverbial ankle bracelet, which somehow connects to a telephone line to a monitoring station," Deputy Chief Rod Stafford explained.

Other conditions of Klassen's release include residing in her residence 24 hours a day, coming to the door upon request of police or probation officers, abstaining from alcohol and drugs, and attending addiction assessment and treatment as dictated by her probation officer.

Her case has been adjourned until February 12.

Klassen is charged with dangerous operation of a vehicle, aggravated assault of a peace officer, operating an unregistered vehicle, and several counts of flight from police after members of the Weyburn Police Service attempted to capture Klassen in the East Weyburn 7-11 parking lot on December 16, 2018. Police said the vehicle and driver were wanted at the time for an earlier incident of flight from police. When police approached the vehicle being driven by Klassen, she allegedly rammed a police cruiser and then attempted to run over an officer when he exited his vehicle to make an arrest. A second Weyburn Police Service vehicle on the scene was also struck head-on.
