North Bay man faces mischief charge
Early Saturday morning, North Bay Police arrested and charged a 31-year old North Bay with:
• One count of mischief under $5000; and
• Two counts of breach of probation.
It is alleged that shortly after midnight on Saturday June 6th, while he was walking by the parking garage of the shopping mall on Fisher Street, the accused threw a bottle at the back door of a passing city bus, causing the glass window on the door to smash. The accused then sat down on the bench. Police were called, immediately attended the scene and arrested the accused on site.
The accused was later released from custody with a first appearance court date of June 23rd, 2015.
Nobody was injured as a result of this incident.
