A man who failed to show up this month for a court appearance in Creston on charges of assaulting a police officer, uttering threats, and mischief has turned himself in.
Police say Mathew Johnson, 26, surrendered to them on Wednesday “as a result of the public and media awareness” after police issued an advisory this week.
In an incident on June 22, police say Johnson smashed the windows on his father’s car and threatened him.
Police say they located him yelling at people near the RCMP detachment. But when an officer approached him and tried to arrest him for the damage to his father’s vehicle, he “became irate.”
They say he kicked the officer several times, but after a short struggle he was taken into custody. He was released on conditions but was a no-show for his July 7 court appearance.
