RCMP Report: Domestic dispute

Man faces multiple charges following an incident near Little Fort

Last week, Clearwater and Barriere RCMP responded to a domestic dispute in a rural area near Little Fort.

The original call came from a female who was being trapped in her own residence. By the time the RCMP showed up, she had escaped to safety and the male had ran from his residence.

The male was searched for and picked up the next morning. He now faces charges of uttering threats, pointing a firearm, assault, and forcible confinement. He is scheduled to attend court on Nov. 5.

School lockdown

On Monday, Oct. 28, Clearwater Secondary School was under lockdown when a student threatened to stab one of the teachers.

Clearwater RCMP quickly arrived on scene and arrested the male without incident.

The male will face a charge of uttering threats and is to attend court on Nov. 6.

Three-day impound

On Oct. 29 a male was stopped on the Yellowhead Highway in between Barriere and Clearwater, after hitting a traffic island in Barriere.

An odor of alcohol was detected on the breath of the driver and it was demanded that he give a breath sample into a roadside screening device.

The male registered two warnings, which resulted in his vehicle being impounded and a three-day driving prohibition.

Icy roads incoming

Within the last week there have been four motor vehicle incidents (accidents). This is a reminder that with the cooling temperature, there is an increase of light sleet/snow etc.. falling from the sky while you are sleeping.

Be aware of this when you wake up in the morning and start your drive to work.
