Man Assaults SPCA Officer During Animal Welfare Investigation

An Upper Mills man has been arrested for assaulting three peace officers and resisting arrest in an incident near a home in that area.

At approximately 1:15 p.m. Friday two District 1 RCMP officers were accompanying an SPCA officer to the home for an animal welfare investigation. A 57-year-old man at the home became violent and assaulted the SPCA officer. When police attempted to arrest the man, he resisted and physically assaulted one of the police officers.

 The second officer intervened, and the man was eventually taken into custody.
He was later released on a promise to appear in St. Stephen Provincial Court at a later date. He is expected to face charges of assaulting peace officers and resisting arrest.
