Chatham man accused of uttering threats during call to police
A 48-year-old Chatham man is facing charges after he allegedly told police he wanted to shoot some people he was arguing with during a dispute over some personal property.
Chatham-Kent police said they arrested the man at a residence on Harwich Street in Chatham after he called them at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday.
Officers said they also seized several firearms during their investigation.
The man was charged with uttering threats and was later released with conditions and a future court date.
Man arrested for causing a disturbance at Chatham hospital
A 31-year-old Chatham man spent some more time in police custody Sunday afternoon after he allegedly caused a disruption at the hospital in Chatham.
Chatham-Kent police said they were called to the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Grand Avenue West at 4:45 p.m. Sunday for a disturbance and learned that the man who was causing issues had already left by the time they arrived.
Police said they later found him walking on Emma Street and learned that he had been bound by a probation order that required him to stay away from the hospital unless he had to go there for an emergency or an appointment.
His visit earlier that day didn’t meet either of those conditions, so he was arrested, taken back to police headquarters, and charged with failing to comply with his probation order.
The man was later released with conditions and a future court date.
