Two combatants in bar fight sentenced

Two men who scuffled in a melee outside a Stettler bar last October were sentenced in Stettler Provincial Court last week

Two men who scuffled in a melee outside a Stettler bar last October were sentenced in Stettler Provincial Court last week — with different results.

Daniel James Hunt, 33, of Stettler, was fined $500 for causing a disturbance outside Social Bo’s last Oct. 7 at about 2:30 a.m.

Other people were involved, as police charged six in connection with the fight.

“It sets a poor example,” Judge E. D. Riemer said.

Hunt was one of several people in a small crowd that became “somewhat unruly,” court learned.

He has also refrained from consuming alcohol since the incident, testimony revealed.

No one was injured in the incident, which required three Stettler RCMP officers to control.

Trevor James Gallant, 32, was given nine months’ probation for causing a disturbance in the same scuffle.

“This is not worthy of any mature adult,” Judge Riemer said.

Before entering the courtroom, Gallant apologized to the RCMP officer for his behaviour.

Several other people were sentenced in court:

Myles Lyndon McKay, 21, was fined $1,300 for impaired driving over the legal limit and suspended from driving for one year.

With a high reading of 200 milligrams, the judge came down hard.

“You represented a significant hazard to live and the safety of people on the road,” Judge Riemer said.

Robert Thomas Glaser, 32, was fined $115 for refusing to leave a bar when requested.

Thomas Edward Kiddey was fined $177 for driving 30 kilometres an hour over the posted speed, though he was recorded speeding 112 km/hour in a 70-km zone, after the charge was lowered just before trial.

Joseph Eugene Huraj was fined $57 for an improper glazed dark window on his vehicle.
