Jerry Os­mond, 54, of St. John’s called the RNC around 10 p.m. Wed­nes­day with a re­port of a crime: his own.

Os­mond, who was un­der court or­ders to stay away from al­co­hol, phoned the po­lice to let them know he was about to breach those or­ders. When po­lice ar­rived at his home in the cen­tre of the city, they found he had been telling the truth, and he was promptly ar­rested.

Os­mond ap­peared in pro­vin­cial court Thurs­day morn­ing on four counts of breach­ing court or­ders, which had been given to him Sept. 5 af­ter he was re­leased to await a court ap­pear­ance on a mis­chief charge.

Os­mond was again re­leased from cus­tody, and will make his next court ap­pear­ance Sept. 20.
