Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYD­NEY — Hav­ing only been re­leased on con­di­tions Mon­day, a French­vale man finds him­self back be­hind bars af­ter be­ing charged with breach­ing his con­di­tions. Cory Todd John O’Neil, 35, of French­vale Road, is now charged with eights counts of breach­ing his re­lease con­di­tions, two counts of mis­chief in­volv­ing prop­erty dam­age (win­dows in a po­lice ve­hi­cle and a sprin­kler head in the re­gional po­lice cell area), and sin­gle counts of threat­en­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer, as­sault and re­sist­ing ar­rest by at­tempt­ing to pull of­fi­cers over a flight of stairs.

The breach charges in­clude fail­ing to keep the peace, fail­ing to ab­stain from al­co­hol and drugs, fail­ing to abide by a cur­few and fail­ing to have no con­tact with cer­tain in­di­vid­u­als.

The of­fences are al­leged to have oc­curred Wed­nes­day.

As a re­sult, O’Neil’s fa­ther, who posted $15,000 in prop­erty, with­drew as a surety for his son’s bail and O’Neil con­sented Thurs­day to a fur­ther re­mand un­til May 31. O’Neil was re­leased ear­lier this week on charges that in­clude three counts of as­sault and sin­gle counts of as­sault with a weapon, break and en­ter, re­sist­ing ar­rest, as­sault­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer and un­law­fully be­ing in a dwelling. Those of­fences are al­leged to have oc­curred be­tween Fe­bru­ary 2016 and last April. Prior to leav­ing court Thurs­day, O’Neil turned to his fa­ther an apol­o­gized for his most re­cent ac­tions.
