Prevented From Calling the Police (Okotoks) – Charges Withdrawn

CC: s.266 - Assault x 2; s.279(2) - Unlawful Confinement

On two separate occasions, my client and his girlfriend got into an argument while she was driving.  Both times, she reached for her cell phone, threatening to call the police.  Both times, my client grabbed her wrist, in order to prevent her from calling, causing her to swerve all over the highway.  On a third occasion, again, during an argument, my client prevented his girlfriend from leaving his residence.

Charges Withdrawn.  Resolved with a Peace Bond before trial.
