At 10 p.m. on November 4, 2017, Grey County OPP responded to a report of a man jumping into traffic attempting to damage vehicles on Highway 21 at French Bay Road in Saugeen First Nation.

When police arrived they saw the suspect smash the windows out of a Saugeen First Nation security vehicle and exit the vehicle. The suspect was arrested for mischief. While being escorted to the OPP cruiser, he assaulted an officer and then kicked the rear passenger door of the cruiser causing damage to it.

The suspect was transported to the Wiarton OPP Detachment where he again assaulted the same officer. The officer went to the hospital where he was treated and released.

The 25-year old Saugeen First Nation man was charged with three counts of Mischief Under $5000, Assault Peace Officer, and Assault Peace Officer – Cause Bodily Harm. Alcohol was a factor.

He was held for a bail hearing and remanded into custody pending a video remand scheduled for November 6, 2017.
