Police deem Alberta man offside after alleged hockey-stick shootout
AIRDRIE A Calgary-area man was sent to the RCMP penalty box after he allegedly used a hockey stick as a pretend gun to shoot at passing vehicles.
Mounties at Airdrie got word late Tuesday afternoon about someone who had broken items in his own home, destroyed a neighbour’s fence and thrown rocks at a parked vehicle.
They say the hockey stick was then stolen and held like it was a firearm.
An arrest was made at a local intersection without the need for bodychecks.
Police determined the accused was under the influence of alcohol and drugs.
Warren Robert Eyapaise, a 37-year-old Airdrie resident, was to appear in court Thursday on charges that include mischief, theft and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
