The 34 year-old male, who is a Brandon resident, was intoxicated on a substance and very aggressive towards Police and security. It was learned that he was the subject of warrants for arrest for assault with a weapon and failing to attend court. He was advised that he was under arrest for the warrants and resisted police. The accused was wearing numerous large winter jackets at the time of the arrest and inside the jacket, he had a large machete style knife, which he dropped during the struggle. The accused was lodged at Brandon Correctional Centre and will appear in court today facing the charges from the arrest warrants as well as new charges including possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, carry a concealed weapon, and resisting arrest.
