Two Media releases via HRP : Police investigate motorcycle accident / Protest at correctional facility leads to arrest

Halifax Regional Police are currently investigating a motor vehicle collision that occurred between a car and a motorcycle.

The collision occurred in the eight hundred block of the Herring Cove Rd, Halifax at 7:50 pm.

The investigation is currently ongoing but no charges are anticipated. Traffic was shut down in the area for a short period of time to allow the investigation to take place.

At 8:00 pm Halifax Regional Police responded to the Central Nova Scotia Correction Facility for approximately thirty people that were protesting outside the facility.

A report had been received that the protesters had been shooting fireworks at the facility and were attempting to climb the fence surrounding the property.

When HRP members arrived the protesters were removed from the property at the request of CNSCF Supervisors.

A 28 year old male was arrested during the incident and will face charges of causing a disturbance, property damage, obstructing a peace officer, assaulting a police officer and wearing a mask while committing an indictable offence. The male will appear in court on September 10th, 2018.

Shortly after leaving the CNSCF some of the protesters gathered at the Halifax Regional Police Headquarters to protest the arrest and detention of their fellow protester.

They were peaceful at this location and disbursed on their own accord shortly after arriving.
