As a result of the investigation into this incident, North Bay Police arrested a 27-year old Tilden Lake man at a local motel yesterday on outstanding warrants with the Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police for fail to attend court, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of a prohibited weapon. North Bay Police also charged him with one count of assault causing bodily harm and seized his pickup truck for further investigation.

The accused was held in custody pending a bail hearing today.
