Man on meth damages cars and brake windows

Methamphetamine consumption has a different effect on people, some sleep or play video games and act somewhat peaceful and quiet, but some individuals are getting angry and agitated. Monday morning incident in Winnipeg had a very angry meth junkie and a damaged property.

Winnipeg police responded to a call about a man on the roof of one of the buildings on William Avenue. When arrived at the scene, officers found a male on the roof of the building, he was acting weird, running left and right and throwing bricks from a chimney to the street.

Police officers tried to talk to a man, negotiate and asked him to calm down, to get down to the street, but he wasn’t responding, also he started throwing bricks trying hit officers. A man was showing signs of methamphetamine consumption.

Crisis negotiators and Fire Paramedics were called at the scene. The incident turned into a seven-hour standoff with several officers getting almost hit a few times. At some point, a man wanted to jump to another building’s roof while screaming and throwing stones and bricks to cars and windows. Two vehicles were damaged and three residential windows were broken.

Finally, a man was brought down and arrested. Now he is remaining in custody and facing multiple charges from assault with a weapon to methamphetamine consumption. A man was identified as Christopher Robert Baron, 40-year-old citizen of Winnipeg.

Unfortunately, such meth-related anger incidents are not the first in Winnipeg, just last week a man on meth threw a full-size barbeque propane tank into a police cruiser that was parked on the street with the RCMP officers inside on the passenger street.

It appears there will not be a transit strike in Winnipeg. The City and the Amalgamated Transit Union say they have rea...

Who likes to be stuck in traffic? I guess, no none, but that is what you have to deal with in a big city. There are certain streets and neighborhoods you know you always will be stuck in traffic, so, naturally, people try to plan their routes avoiding such roads. What can be worse than downtown traffic with all the cars and traffic lights, well… try the whole West End with all the electricity down. A large power outage in Winnipeg's West End had thousands...
