(CENTRAL HURON, ON) – Two residents of Guelph are facing criminal charges following an incident that took place at a Central Huron business earlier this month.
On August 14, 2021 Huron County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officers responded to a tow facility located near Clinton to assist with an individual that wouldn’t leave the premises. Police arrived on scene and quickly determined the subject was trying to get his vehicle out of the tow facility impound. After failing to leave the business premises when directed to do so police attempted to arrest the subject.
The subject failed to comply, resisted arrest and assaulted the arresting officer. Further, a second subject obstructed the arresting officer and interfered with the arrest.
Both subjects were ultimately taken into custody and later released.
28-year-old David HERRON from Guelph is facing charges of Fail to Leave Premises When Directed, Assault Peace Officer, Resist Arrest and Fail to Comply with Recognizance.
27-year-old Logan LEGATE, also from Guelph, is facing a charge of Obstruct Peace Officer.
Both have since been released from custody with a court date scheduled for October 4, 2021 at the Ontario Court of Justice – Goderich.
