A man wielding an axe and threatening to kill police was arrested in Trout Creek last week.

The incident occurred on Nov. 30 at 10:20 p.m. when the 46-year-old man barricaded himself in a garage, armed with an axe.

Police attempts to negotiate with him failed and a police dog from Penticton was brought in.

The man was then overpowered with the use of pepper spray, restrained and taken into custody.

He has been charged with uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm to a police officer, possession of a weapon for purposes dangerous to the public peace, failing to comply with conditions of probation, threatening to use a weapon, resisting arrest, assault and mischief.

He was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday via video link.
