A Dartmouth man facing charges in relation to a hit-and-run incident on the Angus L. MacDonald Bridge in late November that sent two police officers to hospital with minor injuries has received bail, but with a curfew.
Kevin Alexander MacDonald, 20, was arraigned yesterday morning at Dartmouth provincial court on charges of criminal negligence causing bodily harm, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing bodily harm and drug trafficking.
MacDonald was released on recognizance and told to return to court Feb. 10 for election and plea. As part of his bail conditions, MacDonald must reside at his residence on Appian Way in Dartmouth and live by a curfew that has him home each day from 10 p.m. until 6 a.m.
Halifax Regional Police arrested MacDonald Sunday around 9:30 p.m. at a residence on Appian Way.
On Friday night, police searched that same residence and say they found evidence related to the incident in November, along with cocaine, marijuana and other drug paraphernalia.
In the hit-and-run, police claim the officers were making a routine stop at an impaired driving checkpoint around 3 a.m. on Nov. 29 when a vehicle allegedly driven by the suspect charged and accelerated, knocking them both to the pavement.
