A man from central Newfoundland is behind bars facing weapons and assault charges after riding around town on an ATV holding a shotgun.
Springdale RCMP say Gordon Burton was intoxicated when he assaulted another man before the shotgun-toting ride in Miles Cove.
Burton has been charged with pointing a firearm, possession of a dangerous weapon, uttering threats, assault, driving while disqualified, and breach of probation.
He appeared in court yesterday and has been released on recognizance. He’ll appear in court again on August 10th in Grand Falls-Windsor.
