Nelson man to face charges after Castlegar incident
by Castlegar Source on 11 Jan 2012
Castlegar RCMP are recommending charges of assault and mischief endangering life against a 26-year-old Nelson man, according to RCMP Sgt Laurel Mathew.
She said the charges are stemming from an incident on Jan. 8 at roughly 3 a.m., in which a limousine ride for a driver and 18 passengers ended in a collision on Columbia Avenue.
“The limo had been hired to drive the large group of people from Nelson to Castlegar for the evening, and then to drive them all home,” she said. “According to several passengers, one of the passengers aboard the limousine grew aggressive and began yelling and moving around the bus. This passenger then allegedly grabbed the driver of the limo and was assaulting him as they drove.
“At one point the male allegedly grabbed the steering wheel of the limo, and the driver lost control, causing the limo to strike a sign post, fire hydrant, and a cement barrier before coming to a stop.”
‘No injuries were reported, but substantial damage was done to the sign post, cement barrier, and a fire hydrant which was sheared off. The male suspect was located a short distance away and arrested. He was released from custody on several conditions, one of which is a curfew from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m. every day.”
Mathew said the man is scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 20.
