Police received a report of “road rage” complaining of a driver who waived a handgun and threatened another motorist. Police obtained a description of the driver and the vehicle and located a vehicle matching the same description. Police cornered the vehicle and drew their firearms, demanding that the driver exit his vehicle. The driver rolled up his windows and did not exit the vehicle for several minutes. Once he exited he was arrested and the vehicle was searched. Police discovered a hidden compartment underneath the steering wheel which contained a loaded handgun and drugs. He was charged with 13 charges including possession of fentanyl for the purpose of trafficking, and possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking. He also faced seven charges with respect to possession of a loaded handgun. The Crown was opposed to K.R.’s release on bail and the matter proceeded to a hearing.
BOTTOM LINE: Ms. Fagan successfully obtained bail for her client on reasonable terms.
