(FORT FRANCES, ON) – A 30-year-old Michael Pattison, who is up on charges stemming from a violent home invasion where a knife was involved, has found himself back in a cell at the Fort Frances OPP detachment.
Officers found the man at a local establishment where he was clearly intoxicated and advised him that he was not to be outside of his home while intoxicated. The suspect allegedly left without incident but was later found back at the establishment, consuming alcohol and was therefore arrested and detained at the police station for court this morning.
Pattison is facing a new charge of breaching his bail conditions which stipulate he is to remain in his home while intoxicated.
Pattison is a suspect in a June 13th incident where a home was broken into and a knife was brandished. He may also be still working his way through court for an assaultative charge towards police.
After some discussion, and Pattison claiming he needs to be in Thunder Bay today for a family members funeral, his bail was denied and he was ordered to remain in jail. He has a court appearance scheduled for Monday in Fort Frances.
He will remain in the Fort Frances District Jail until at least Monday.
