Weyburn woman charged with assaulting police officers

The Weyburn Police Service received 93 calls for service during the week of March 1-7, resulting in 14 charges under the Traffic Safety Act and 12 under the Criminal Code of Canada. One individual faces several charges including operating a conveyance while impaired by alcohol, refusing to comply with a breath demand, resisting arrest, and two charges of assaulting a police officer.

Kicking off the week, officers responded to a noise complaint but ended up dealing with much more. While responding to the initial call, officers located an intoxicated adult female who was found in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle. The female was arrested but resisted and kicked both of the arresting officers. As a result, in addition to charges of impaired operation of a conveyance and refusing to comply with a breath demand, the female also faces charges of resisting arrest and two counts of assaulting a police officer.

During mid-week, an attempted daylight traffic stop saw one driver fail to stop and flee from police. The adult male was identified by the officer and located a short time later. He now faces several charges including dangerous driving, flight from police, failure to wear a seatbelt, and driving while suspended.

Also during the week, officers dealt with several individuals found to be breaching a condition of their release or a court order. Those individuals were dealt with accordingly.
