Cold Lake Man Charged for Resisting Arrest

One of those conditions that the man was under was not to be in a vehicle without the owner present. The vehicle was registered to an individual from Newfoundland, that was not the man driving the vehicle. The driver also couldn’t provide any proof of insurance.

During the search of the vehicle, two cell phones were located and a folding knife. The driver was on conditions not to be in possession of a cell phone and not to be in possession of a weapon.

When the officer attempted to arrest the driver, he resisted and had to be pulled out of the vehicle. The vehicle was towed. Charged was 37 year old, Nicolas Stovell, of Cold Lake. Stovell faces charges of resisting arrest and breaching conditions of a recognizance x6. He appeared before a Justice of the Peace and did not speak to bail.

Since that court date he was released from the Edmonton Remand Centre. Stovell now has a 9:00pm curfew, his next court date is February 14th at 10:00 am in Cold Lake.
