It was a busy Sunday night for Brockville Police Services – 34 calls for service and 3 held for bail hearings today. In addition, a number of reports of thefts from unlocked vehicles in Central Ave and Front Avenue areas.
Disturbance at William Street Tim Horton’s
A 28 year old Brockville man was arrested for public intoxication early Sunday morning for his role in a disturbance in the William Street Tim Horton’s parking lot.
Just prior to 6:00 a. m. Brockville Police were called to the Tim Horton’s lot of 7-10 males fighting in the parking lot. On officers arrival the fight quickly broke up and the combatants with the exception of the 28 year old went their separate ways. The man was well under the influence of alcohol and officers were concerned for his safety and as a result arrested him for being intoxicated in a public place.
He was conveyed to the Brockville Police station where he was held until sober and released from custody with a Provincial Offences Notice.
Breach of Bail Conditions
While on patrol in the Perth Street area, officers spotted a 27 year old Brockville area woman in breach of her bail conditions by being out without her surety present.
Sgt. Shawn Borgford was on patrol on Perth Street near the railway tracks at 1:15 p. m. yesterday afternoon, when he spotted the woman walking alone. He confirmed her bail conditions and located her again walking down Downey Street. At the time he noticed that she had been consuming alcohol, which is also contrary to her bail release conditions.
As a result, the woman was arrested for Breach of her Recognizance and conveyed to the Brockville Police station where she was held pending a bail hearing today.
Domestic Dispute leads to Arrests
At 9:00 p. m. last evening Brockville Police were called to the Glenn Wood apartments on a report of a domestic disturbance in one of the units.
When police arrived they initially were not let into the apartment and the door was barricaded with a chair. Eventually they were able to gain entry to ensure the safety of the occupants inside. Once inside the residence, officers located a 51 year old Brockville woman who was wanting on outstanding warrants by the Brockville Police and a 49 year old Brockville man who was on a Recognizance of Bail with a condition not to being in his residence.
Both were arrested and held at the Brockville Police Service pending a Monday bail hearing.
Impaired Driving and Refusal
A call to the Brockville Police last night at 11:45 p. m. resulted in a 26 year old Brockville woman being charged with impaired driving and refusing to provide breath samples.
The anonymous caller identified the woman driving a blue Hyundai southbound on Stewart Boulevard and told police she was under the influence of alcohol. Officers caught up with the vehicle as it was arriving at a Victoria Avenue address and stopped the car.
After detecting an odour of alcohol on the driver’s breath, the woman was given a demand to provide breath samples into a roadside screening device which she refused on several occasions.
As a result, the woman was charged with refusing to provide samples of her breath and released with a future court date.
