ESTEVAN - On Sept. 4, Estevan police were called to a residence where it was reported that some young people had run through a yard and sprayed what they thought was a fire extinguisher in the victim’s faces.
One of the youths was located and the item was in actuality, a leaf blower that had some powder packed inside.
When police went to arrest the youth, he resisted. He was subsequently charged with assault and resisting arrest and is set for court in October.
Police also received a call about a disturbance at a residence in the southwest area of the city. Members spoke to family members who admitted to having an argument, but no physical altercation had occurred. No further action was necessary.
A traffic stop was conducted, and an approved screening device (ASD) was used to obtain a breath sample. The 32-year-old driver blew a warning and was issued a 72-hour driver’s license suspension.
