A man who assaulted his girlfriend called police on himself and then harassed and threatened officers, the Crown attorney alleges.
During a bail hearing in Brandon provincial court on Thursday, Crown attorney Deidre Badcock outlined the events of May 30.
Badcock said a man on the Sioux Valley Dakota Nation called the dispatcher for the Dakota Ojibway Police Service and said he’d assaulted his girlfriend.
He said he was at his mom’s home, had guns and would wait for officers and shoot them when they arrived.
But when constables got to the home, they found the man asleep in a basement bedroom with a baseball bat by his side. Police also learned that the intoxicated suspect had smashed the window of his girlfriend’s van.
During his arrest, he spat at two constables and told another that he was going to cut his head off.
He then apologized for spitting, but told officers he had a communicable disease that would ruin their lives.
He also told officers that he knew they lived in Brandon and would get them. He should have beat his girlfriend worse to make it worth his while, he added.
The allegations against the accused haven’t been proven in court.
Levi George Ross, 42, is charged with assault, two counts of assaulting a peace officer, uttering threats and mischief.
Judge John Combs consented to release Ross, who will live in Brandon while on bail. His bail conditions include an order that he not attend Sioux Valley, except for court appearances.
Ross will appear in court next in Sioux Valley on Aug. 13.
