RCMP Report: Altercation in Avola

On Nov. 25, at approximately 5:30 p.m. Clearwater RCMP were called to the Avola Gas Station as a result of a disturbance

On Nov. 25, at approximately 5:30 p.m. Clearwater RCMP were called to the Avola Gas Station as result of a male and female causing a disturbance.

The male had kicked the glass door, smashing the glass.

The two then had then proceeded toward Clearwater in a black coloured Mazda car.

Police located the suspect vehicle on Highway 5 near Birch Island and attempted to pull the vehicle over. However, the driver would not stop and fled from police.

The vehicle eventually came to a dead end on a side road. The male jumped out of the vehicle and ran into the bush. The female got out of the vehicle and complied with police directions.

A member followed the male’s foot tracks in the snow until he was located. The male was arrested for mischief, failing to stop for police and flight from police.

The female was subsequently arrested as she had an endorsed warrant from the Victoria Police Department. The female was released from police custody short afterwards once the warrant was dealt with.

During the investigation, the male provided a false name to police. When the members confirmed his actual identity, they found that the male had multiple court imposed conditions (he was to remain inside his house during evening hours, and he was not allowed to leave the Province of Alberta or possess a cellphone).

The male was in breach of the listed court conditions and also will face multiple new charges in Clearwater.

As well, the male was intoxicated and received a three-day driving prohibition.
