Michael Far­nell- McCarthy agreed on May 28 that he would abide by the con­di­tions of a re­cog­ni­zance and had three peo­ple sign on to act as his sureties.

Ear­lier this week all three ap­plied to the pro­vin­cial court in Cor­ner Brook to with­draw from that role and Far­nell-McCarthy found him­self back in jail.

The Massey Drive man is charged with two counts of dan­ger­ous oper­a­tion of a ve­hi­cle, two counts of driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied and oper­a­tion of a ve­hi­cle while im­paired. The charges were laid on May 27 af­ter he al­legedly failed to stop for po­lice on O’Con­nell Drive.

Po­lice al­lege he was speed­ing and fol­lowed the ve­hi­cle to Tuma Av­enue where it stopped in a res­i­den­tial drive­way and Far­nell-McCarthy ex­ited it in an at­tempt to avoid po­lice. He was ar­rested in a res­i­den­tial back­yard in close prox­im­ity to the ve­hi­cle.

In the ap­pli­ca­tions filed with the court the sureties named on his May 28th re­cog­ni­zance al­lege that he breached the con­di­tions by not re­turn­ing to his res­i­dence at a set time and for not be­ing in the pres­ence of ei­ther of the three of them as re­quired.

Dur­ing a bail hear­ing on Wednesday those ap­pli­ca­tions were granted.

Far­nell-McCarthy was able to se­cure new sureties and was re­leased from cus­tody.

His next court ap­pear­ance is set for July. 10.
