It's going to be an extra expensive weekend for dozens of people at Countryfest.
For the second day in the row, RCMP in Dauphin say they have issued around 100 speeding tickets in and around the Countryfest site.
In the 24-hour period from 8 a.m. Thursday to 8 a.m. Friday, police officers nabbed more than 95 people for speeding, plus issued two tickets for driving without a license, four for failing to wear a seatbelt, and 18 for other traffic offenses.
They also issued about the same number the day before.
One of the speeders stopped around 10 a.m. on Thursday was just south of Dauphin. The driver, a 29-year-old man from Inglis, was arrested for breaching conditions of his undertaking after officers found him to be in possession of a small amount of both cocaine and marijuana. He was kept in custody and will appear in Dauphin court on July 2.
Around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, officers also pulled over a vehicle on Highway 5 west of Dauphin and arrested the driver for impaired driving. A 21 year old Winnipeg man was released and is scheduled to make his first court appearance in Dauphin on Aug. 20.
Also Thursday, RCMP were called four times to the Countryfest site itself, where they responded to two reported assaults and two reported mischiefs.
In one of the assaults, a 23 year old male from the RM of St. Andrews, Manitoba was arrested. He has been released from custody and is scheduled to make his first court appearance in Dauphin on August 13, 2013.
Three people were removed from the site for being intoxicated and lodged in cells.
