Medicine Hat News - - COMMUNITY - WEST -

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.
