“Not Guilty” Pleas Entered By Two People Arrested in Connection to Alleged Assault of Police Officers

An Abernethy resident arrested following a January incident, involving the alleged assault of police officers, was back in court yesterday (THURS).
Around 3 a.m. on January 19th, RCMP were called to an Abernethy home, to deal with a domestic dispute, and when Mounties tried to arrest the man, both suspects became aggressive, allegedly assaulting the officers.
A taser was used on the woman, to no effect, and the man tried to grab it from the officer.
The arrests were made after additional officers were called to the scene.
25-year-old Brandon Poorman and 20-year-old Marlee Quewezance each pled “not guilty,” to two counts of Assaulting a Peace Officer, with Poorman’s trial set for June 1st.
Quewezance’s trial was to be held yesterday, in Fort Qu’Appelle, but the matter was adjourned to July 16th.
