Man charged with assaulting police officer — in lobby of OPP detachment

Incident occurred at the Elliot Lake OPP detachment on the night of April 10

A man is charged with assaulting a police officer — in the lobby of an OPP detachment.

On April 10 at approximately 10 p.m., a person attended the OPP detachment in Elliot Lake "demanding assistance with a non-police matter."

"When officers attempted to help, the person became irate, unreasonable, and assaulted an officer," says a new release from the OPP. 

Daryl Legree, 39, of Elliot Lake was arrested and charged with assaulting a peace officer.

He was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing in Blind River on April 11.

None of the allegations have been tested in court and Legree is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
