Sturgeon Falls driver charged for following former partner

A 43-year-old man from West Nipissing is facing several charges, including harassment, after accusations he was continuously following his former partner in a vehicle.

Officers were called to a domestic disturbance on Highway 17 in Markstay-Warren shortly before 1 p.m. Sept. 19, Ontario Provincial Police said in a news release.

"A vehicle was being followed by another vehicle operated by a previous partner on the highway," OPP said.

"Police located the vehicles and conducted a traffic stop with both vehicles; one driver was arrested."

As a result, the man has been charged with criminal harassment (repeatedly following), resisting and obstructing a peace officer, domestic mischief and dangerous operation.

He was held pending a bail hearing in Sudbury.

"To protect the identity of the victim, the accused name and court date will not be released," OPP said.
