Yet another trial date has been set for a former Red Deer man arrested in Hinton on Canada-wide warrants.

Trevor Norman John Legge, originally from Grand Falls, Nfld., was arrested near Hinton late in August.

Legge is facing charges in various jurisdictions, including three different sets of charges to be handled in Red Deer.

Currently being held in Edmonton, Legge was brought to Red Deer on Wednesday to answer a variety of charges relating to an incident near Blackfalds, involving a police pursuit of a suspect.

Legge, 30, is believed to have been behind the wheel of a pickup truck that police chased through an elk farm early in August, crashing through fences a number of times before the driver escaped on foot.

Legge pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges laid in relation to the pursuit, including dangerous driving and other motor vehicle offences.

He is to be tried in Red Deer on Feb. 27 on those charges.

He also has two other trials scheduled. Legge is back in Red Deer on Nov. 21 to be tried for failing to make a court appearance, then returns to court on Feb. 20 to answer to a total of 20 charges, including firearms and weapons offences and numerous counts of possession of stolen property.
