Local man,19, faces charges
A 19-year-old Georgetown man is facing charges after an incident with Halton Police Thursday afternoon.

About 3:05 p.m. police stopped and spoke with a man who was walking on foot on Park Ave. telling him he would be summonsed on a previous matter.

While the man and police officer were walking toward the cruiser police say the man pushed the officer and ran off. After a short pursuit police arrested the man, who became upset, struggled and broke free. He ran off again. The officer chased him, but he got away, leaving his backpack behind.

Police found a quantity of marijuana in the backpack.

A short time later police say the suspect turned himself into Georgetown Police station.

Charged with two counts of breach of probation, assault police officer, escape lawful custody and possession for the purpose of trafficking is Braxton Daffern.
