A 45 year old Thunder Bay Firefighter has been charged with dangerous driving and also faces a charge of aggravated assault on a prominent Thunder Bay Doctor which resulted in wounds and broken bones.
STEPHEN JAMES CAMERON of Ray Boulevard in Thunder Bay was off duty on the night of July 2,2017. He’s facing charges that he allegedly committed an act of dangerous driving by almost hitting the victim with a vehicle and a vicious assault on a prominent local physician at the intersection of Winnipeg & Bay Street. The Doctor was off work for several months and still suffers the effects of this alleged assault.
CAMERON, a former plumber, has been with the Thunder Bay Fire Department for the past 7 years and is stationed out of the North Central Station.
His next court appearance is July 18,2018 in Courtroom 102 for a Confirmation Hearing to ensure all parties are ready for trial. A trial date has been reserved for August 27,2018.
Aggravated Assault is an indictable offence under Section 268 of the Criminal Code and has a maximum penalty of 14 years in prison if convicted.
Sources indicate the vicious attack was captured on a local resident’s security camera and that the injured party is filing a multimillion dollar lawsuit for damages against Cameron.
