Guelph Male Arrested After Stand-Off
A Guelph male was arrested Wednesday after a neighbour dispute caused a street to be closed while officers negotiated with a male for more than two hours.
Officers were called to the area of Huron Street and Elizabeth Street after several reports of a male outside screaming obscenities at neighbours and passersby. Investigation revealed the male is on probation with a condition not to have contact with some of those same neighbours.
Officers arrived approximately 4:30 p.m. and the male went back inside the residence. Officers attempted to negotiate with him for more than two hours before he was placed under arrest without incident approximately 6:45 p.m.
A 42-year-old Guelph male is charged with causing a disturbance and two counts of breaching a probation order. He was held for a bail hearing Thursday.
