2:26 a.m. – A noise complaint resulted in a patrol being made by RCMP on 48th Street at 50th Avenue in Bentley.

As a result, the male was handcuffed and taken to cells until sober. While at cells, the male kicked one of the members and uttered threats against him. He also threatened to kill another police officer. As a result of the confrontations, the 51-year-old male is now facing charges of uttering threats against peace officers, assaulting a peace officer, obstructing a peace officer and disturbing the peace.
