Ashern men aid RCMP officer in arrest June 29, little did he realize his noticing a crowd would lead to an exciting afternoon.
"There were some Aboriginals and whites on the street," said Pollock. "I couldn't see what they were looking at because another vehicle was in the way, but I coach outlet tinton falls nj noticed they looked agitated. It was like that for three to five coach outlet mall minutes. I was curious so I backed out see what was cooking." "In speaking with this individual, it became apparent he was heavily intoxicated and under the influence of alcohol," said Sgt. Kevin coach outlet sale vacaville Mantie of the Lundar and Ashern detachments. "During the arrest of this person, he became actively resistant towards the officer. His level of resistance increased to being combative and police used defensive techniques in an attempt to restrain this suspect to avoid an all out fight where someone may have got hurt." Pollock says he saw the officer arresting the suspect in question. "From my experience he was losing and the prisoner was going to get away," said Pollock. "He was facing the constable, which in my experience is not the way you arrest someone without getting hurt." Pollock described the suspect as a tall native young man. "(The suspect) was tugging and struggling to stand," said Pollock. "He had almost ripped the constable's vest off." Bill Wallace, pastor of Ashern Gospel Chapel, stepped in to help calm the suspect, and received a black eye during the struggle. "I had a couple of stitches, which got taken out last week," said Wallace. "I bled a lot, but it looked worse than it actually was. I hadn't had a black eye in 30 years, so it was kind of a novelty."

The constable couldn't get free. He was exhausted and pale in the face." Pollock said he was afraid the crowd was becoming agitated. "People were moving around and I thought something was going to happen, so I told the constable to relax for a moment and sit on him," said Pollock. "I saw this young Aboriginal and thought it would be a good idea to get him in on it.
I told to him to free the constable's wrist and put the prisoner's right arm behind his back and he did it just like that, no problem. Then Bill got his other arm and we got him to the car, which was quite a ways down, without incident.".
