During a dispute, the 63 year old struck the victim in the forehead which later required stitches to close the wound.

Lying to staff ended badly for a man wanting to drive instead of calling a cab.
The 30 year old, from Virgil, Ontario, told employees of a north end eatery he was calling a cab after having too much to drink. He was then observed driving away from their parking lot and police were called. Officers stopped the man a short distance away on the 29th around 11:00 pm, after a description of the car was obtained. After his breath sample on a roadside unit registered a fail, he was arrested for being over the legal limit.
Later at the station, two samples of his breath revealed readings almost twice the legal limit. He was released when safe to do so but his vehicle was impounded and his licence suspended for 90 days.
A future court and fingerprint date was issued.
