A 47-year-old Lac La Hache man is facing 11 charges, including several driving offences, assault and uttering threats, said the 100 Mile RCMP in a press release Tuesday.
On Dec. 12, the 100 Mile RCMP were called to a vehicle in the ditch near Lac la Hache on Highway 97.
“The occupants of the vehicle appeared to be arguing at the side of the road,” the police release noted. “The male operator appeared to have consumed alcohol.”
When police arrived the female was still on the scene. She was not cooperative, police said.
The driver, her common-law husband, was prohibited from operating a motor vehicle under the Motor Vehicle Act and under the Criminal Code.
