RCMP in Cochrane have issued an arrest warrant for a man charged with public mischief and fraud stemming from a fake overcrowding campaign to cover medical costs.

Stelianos Psaroudakis skipped out on a scheduled court hearing related to charges from an incident in July where he claimed to have run into a piece of barbed wire strung across a public dirt bike trail.

After sustaining serious injuries to the neck Psaroudakis opened a GoFundMe account to raise money for his recovery and to purchase a GoPro to put on the trail to stop similar accidents.

While Psaroudakis injuries are genuine, he sustained them driving into a barbed wire fence housing cows on a piece of private property.

Police are now actively searching for him.
