Walpole Island Man Arrested At Windsor Border

A 19-year-old man from Walpole Island accused of assaulting someone near a basketball park in Wallaceburg is in more trouble with the law after he was arrested on the Ambassador Bridge in Windsor.

Police say the man was picked up by Canada Border Services at around 12am Tuesday after allegedly skipping a court date on June 13.

Officers say the man was supposed to appear in court in June to answer to a charge of aggravated assault in connection with an incident earlier this spring, but he never showed up.

The 19-year-old man is accused of seriously injuring someone who tried to stop an argument he was having with a younger male in Wallaceburg on May 22.

The accused has been released from custody and is scheduled to appear in court on August 16.


Ordered Not To Drive, But She Did Anyway

A 30-year-old Chatham woman is facing another charge after police allege they spotted her driving when she was ordered not to.

Officers say the woman was arrested back in February and charged with driving while under suspension, driving without insurance, and driving while impaired.

She was released from custody on the condition that she would not drive.

Police allege despite that, they spotted her behind the wheel in Chatham at around 10pm Monday and pulled her over on Lacroix St. at Richmond St.

She was charged with failing to comply with her release conditions and released with a future court date.
