Break and Enter Charges
A 24 year old Brockville man is facing break and enter and mischief charges after an argument with his 23 year old girlfriend early yesterday morning. Early Thursday morning the young man had been drinking, and the couple began arguing at the woman’s house before he left the residence for the remainder of the night. At approximately 6 a.m. Thursday morning Brockville Police received a call from the residence indicating the now intoxicated male had broken into the residence and was now sleeping in the basement. Further investigation revealed he had mistakenly entered three other residences in the area looking for his girlfriend’s house before finding the correct residence.
Responding officers arrested the male for break and enter and mischief in relation to the incidents and held him until he was sober. He was released with several conditions and given a future court date.
Impaired Driving a Motor Assisted Bicycle
Last evening at approximately 610 p.m. officers stopped a Motor Assisted Bicycle on Buell Street for a Highway Traffic Act infraction and found the operator to be under the influence of alcohol.
The 41 year old Brockville man was driving his gas-powered bike on Buell Street and having troubles braking when officers stopped him. While speaking with the man, it was obvious to them he was under the influence of alcohol at the time. Officers then arrested the man for impaired driving, as a Motorized Bicycle is a motor vehicle, and demanded he provide breath samples which the man refused. Further investigation revealed the operator was a disqualified driver for life for previous convictions of impaired driving.
As a result the Brockville man is now facing charges of impaired driving, refusal to provide breath samples and driving while disqualified. He was also released from custody and given a future court date.
