The Rolling Stones famously wrote in their smash hit Street Fightin' Man, "Cause summer's here and the time is right for fighting in the street," and a pair of family members took it literally say OPP.
On April 8, at 7:11 p.m., OPP officers were called to a family dispute in Elliot Lake.
A man had called the police to report that he was assaulted and threatened with a baseball bat.
When police arrived on the scene, they found two men who were yelling obscenities at each other and about to exchange knuckle sandwiches.
Both refused to co-operate with officers so both were promptly cuffed and arrested.
As a result, a 48-year-old Elliot Lake man was issued a Provincial Offence Notice for being intoxicated in a public place.
He was held in police custody overnight and released the next morning.
A 38-year-old Elliot Lake man was charged with:
- Being intoxicated in a public place
- Fail to comply with Recognizance
He is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Elliot Lake, Ontario on May 2.
Back to the Stones, it was such a great song it deserves a replay here.
