Impaired driving charges
On Thursday evening at approximately 8:20pm officers attended the scene of a motor vehicle accident at the intersection of Windsor St and Young St in Halifax. Witnesses indicated that a motorcyclist struck a vehicle at that location. The adult operator of the motorcycle was transported to the QEII hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Subsequent investigation by officers resulted in the 32-year-old operator of the motorcycle being charged with Impaired Driving and Driving while prohibited, to which he will appear in court on a later date.
At approximately 12:30am officers attended an address in the 5600 block of Duffus St in Halifax for a report of an unknown trouble. Upon arrival, officers were confronted by a 50-year-old male in possession of a knife who challenged police to shoot him. It was learned by responding officers that this same male had shortly before their arrival threatened an adult female roommate with a knife. The roommate was able to exit the residence and speak with attending officers. The 50-year-old male ran into the unoccupied home still in possession of the knife while officers contained the residence. Emergency Response officers and K9 attended and a brief negotiation took place with the male until he exited the residence on his own and was taken into custody. A 50-Year-old male appear in court on charges of Uttering threats to cause bodily harm and weapons dangerous.
