(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A domestic violence situation erupted a day after child tax payments went out across the nation yesterday, September 21st, 2019.
Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service responded to a call for service in the 700 block of Brodie Street North after reports of domestic violence erupting were made. Officers responded to the scene.
Police whisked a pregnant woman away from the situation and chose not to lay charges against Kevin Zoccole. Allegations arose that Zoccole tossed a flower pot at the police cruiser, damaging the window.
Officers swooped in and arrested the man. It’s scary to think about what he does behind closed doors when this is how he acts in front of police officers.
Court hears that Zoccole’s family is deeply concerned with his substance abuse and seem fearful.
His Worship, Regional Senior Justice of the Peace Bernard Caron is presiding over this morning’s bail appearances. A Crown Attorney and duty counsel lawyer Robert Atatise are present for the matters. The Crown states they are willing to release Zoccole on an undertaking under the following conditions:
- Reside in the 700 block of Brodie Street North with his mommy.
- Be amendable to the rules of the house (listen to mommy).
- Curfew 11:00 pm to 6:00 am (be in mommy’s house between these times).
- Do not contact the pregnant woman from the domestic violence situation.
- Do not attend within 100 meters of where that pregnant woman may be.
- Do not possess any weapons as defined by the criminal code.
- Do not possess any unlawful drugs (can’t get high at mommy’s, or anywhere else).
Duty counsel informs the court that Neil McCartney is Zoccole’s lawyer of choices and will inform him of his clients current status.
Kevin Zoccole is ordered released from police custody on an undertaking with no cash down. He is scheduled to appear in court on October 18th, 2019 to begin answering to the charges laid against him.
