Man ac­cused of dis­arm­ing of­fi­cer to en­ter guilty plea

The Compass - - NEWS -

A man ar­rested last fall for al­legedly driv­ing drunk and dis­arm­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer will likely en­ter some guilty pleas when his case re­turns to Har­bour Grace pro­vin­cial court next month.

Robert Bar­rett was not in court last Wed­nes­day, but de­fence lawyer Mike King ap­peared on his be­half by tele­con­fer­ence.

King told Judge Jacqueline Brazil he spoke with the Crown about the case and ex­pects it can be dealt with by speedy dis­po­si­tion at the next court date.

The Old Per­li­can res­i­dent is fac­ing three charges in re­la­tion to an in­ci­dent that hap­pened in late Oc­to­ber in Vic­to­ria — im­paired driv­ing, re­fusal to give a breath sam­ple, and dis­arm­ing a po­lice of­fi­cer. His case will re­turn to court Feb. 18.
