RCMP Arrest Tough Guy
Promontory perimeter setup to contain rowdy
Staff/Voice - Tuesday
runken Domestic Disturbance at 6:18am - A woman locked herself in the bedroom of her Agassiz home while her three children slept in order to avoid a male who was binge drinking for days. The problem came to a head and she called police who responded and arrested the man. She told police he was a hunter and that there were guns and police checked and there were no firearms registered to the man. The woman later recanted and said that the reason she said there were guns was because she was upset.
Unloved and Unwanted
7:00am - A male felt threatened by another male and called police. The complainant described the male as being big and with the temper of a junkyard dog. RCMP checked and the unruly male was arrested. Apparently he was charged in another province for assault causing bodily harm and so they grouped not far from the location until they had sufficient numbers to deal with the unruly man and then proceeded to attend to the call.
