Man Facing 19 Charges After Shale Gas Protests

A 21-year-old man from Rexton is facing 19 charges, after his actions during shale gas protests.

Germain Breau was arrested in October and has been in custody ever since. RCMP say he was arrested after police were trying to control a dangerous situation involving firearms, improvised explosive devices and other weapons.

Some of the charges against him include, careless use of a firearm, pointing a firearm at a police officer, obstructing a police officer and violating a probation order.

Yesterday, 15 more charges were laid against him at Moncton Provincial Court, and he will be back in court tomorrow.
