What was initially thought to be a ‘car surfing’ incident over the weekend actually turned out to be the result of an argument – and led to three drug-related charges for a Kingston woman.

On Friday, Nov. 16, 2018 at approximately 9:40 p.m., the woman and a male acquaintance began arguing and yelling in a parking lot off of Russell Street. With the argument escalating, the male got into a vehicle and began to drive away. The woman reacted by jumping on the hood of the vehicle, Kingston Police said, and, as the male applied the brakes, the woman rolled off of the vehicle onto the ground. The male drove away and was not located, according to a press release from Kingston Police.

When Kingston Police arrived on the scene, the woman had already been assessed by Frontenac Paramedics, and was found to be uninjured. However, in dealing with police, the woman was uncooperative, yelling and becoming aggressive with the officers. The woman was arrested for breach of the peace, and during a search, police found her to be in possession of suspected crystal methamphetamine, hydromorphone pills, and a small quantity of cocaine.

The 26-year-old woman is charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance.


Kingston Police are investigating after a female suffered injuries in an apparent “car-surfing” incident on Russell St on the evening of Friday, November 16th.

Kingston Police, Kingston Fire & Rescue and Frontenac Paramedics were called to the scene on Russell near Patrick St at around 9:45 p.m. for reports that a female had been holding on to the roof of a vehicle and then was thrown off. Eyewitnesses described it as a “car-surfing” incident. Paramedics assessed the female at the scene and determined that she had suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

It is currently unknown whether any charges are pending from the incident.
