Man facing multiple charges after scuffle with police
A trial date has been set for a man accused of putting up a fight while police were placing him under arrest on drug charges.
Dylan Lee Spencer Ryan, 20, was arrested last month in Consort by RCMP from the Coronation detachment and subsequently charged with possession of marijuana exceeding 30 grams, possession of cocaine for trafficking, assaulting a police officer while resisting arrest, a separate charge of assaulting a police officer and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.
Represented by Red Deer lawyer Paul Morigeau, Ryan appeared in Coronation provincial court on Friday to enter a guilty plea and set a date for his trial.
He is to be tried by judge alone in Coronation provincial court on April 12.
Ryan is eligible for release pending the outcome of his trial, but had not raised the $1,500 cash required to meet bail conditions as of Friday afternoon.
