Calgary man assaults bylaw officer over parking ticket, police say

A dispute over a parking ticket turned violent last week when a Calgary man allegedly assaulted a bylaw officer, police said in a release.

At about 8:40 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 1, Whistler RCMP was notified of the incident in the 4300 block of Blackcomb Way. Police have since learned that during morning patrols, a bylaw officer noted a vehicle in Day Lot 5 that had parked in violation of local regulations. When the officer informed the man of the ticket, he allegedly "became physical with the officer," police said. The bylaw officer managed to break free and contacted police, who located the man a short distance away.

The 63-year-old man was taken into custody for assault before being released with a promise to appear in court later this month.

Four-car collision results in minor injuries

A four-car collision led to minor injuries for everyone involved last week, police said in a release.

At approximately 8 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 3, Whistler RCMP responded to a report of a multiple vehicle collision on Highway 99 at Cypress Place. Police have since learned that a green 1998 Nissan Pathfinder was travelling southbound on the highway when it failed to stop for vehicles stopped at a red light. The Pathfinder then collided with a vehicle in front, which "caused two more chain reaction collisions," police said.

The driver of the Pathfinder, a 23-year-old Port Moody man, was issued two violation tickets for failing to have insurance and following too close.
