4.85 - The One with the real story

So my previous post was about that guy that got arrested on's what the local paper published on what happened...

On Friday, June 27 at 9:15 p. m., Cobourg Police approached a man walking in the area of the entrance to Victoria Park trailer park. He was swearing.

Police say they started to ask the man questions and quickly determined he had been drinking and was bound by a probation order which included a clause prohibiting consumption of alcohol.

As police attempted to arrest the man and take physical control of him, he ran from the officers. After a brief foot chase, police say, he was apprehended and charged with escaping custody.

Police say the accused be belligerent with officers, kicking and flailing about in an attempt to avoid being handcuffed. He resist the officers' attempts to restrain him and both officers were hurt, police report. The officers did not require medical attention, but both received abrasions on their arms, hands, and legs and one officer is suffering from a sore back.

A 20-year-old Cobourg man is in police custody. He has been charged with two counts each of assault with intent to resist arrest and failing to comply with probation orders and one count of escaping lawful custody.

...not as exciting as I hoped it was going to be.
