BONNYVILLE – Between May 6-13, RCMP members were called to several early morning incidents that involved intoxication and mischief, assault and prohibited weapons. 

At 3:45 a.m. on May 7, a Bonnyville resident called the RCMP to report an intoxicated man she found passed out in her unlocked vehicle parked at a hotel on 50 Ave.   

Police attended the scene and woke the man up who was reportedly unable to stand on his own due to his level of alleged intoxication. 

The 28-year-old male from Meadow Lake, Sask., was charged with mischief and disturbing the peace. 

He was released on an undertaking once sober to appear in Provincial Court on July 19. 

Assaulting an officer 

Later in the morning on May 7, Bonnyville RCMP were dispatched to a residence in between 40 St. and 42 St. and 48 Ave. for a disturbance involving two people at 8:20 a.m. 

One of the individuals at the residence had allegedly assaulted the other and was arrested. 

During his arrest, the man allegedly resisted and struck the arresting members at the scene and then allegedly did so again as he was being lodged into cells at the detachment, according to an RCMP media release. 

The 28-year-old male from Elk Point was charged with assault, two counts of assaulting a police officer, two counts of resisting arrest, and mischief under $5,000. 

The man was held for a bail hearing and a Justice of the Peace released him to appear in Provincial Court on June 7. 

Concealed restricted weapon 

On May 9 at 8:30 a.m., Bonnyville RCMP received a complaint about two people asleep in the ATM vestibule at the TD bank. 

A member attended the business, located and arrested a woman who was allegedly found to have a weapon on her person and a prohibited weapon found in her belongings, according to police. 

The 39-year-old woman from Bonnyville is facing charges of carrying a concealed weapon, possession of a restricted weapon, two counts of being in possession of a weapon contrary to an order, and mischief under $5,000. 

She was brought before a Justice of the Peace and released to appear in Court on June 7.
