WOODSTOCK - It was a busy Friday for Woodstock police. Around 11 a.m. they received a call about a 27 year old woman with warrants for her arrest in the Mill Street area. Police were able to find and arrest her. The original charge was for breaching a probation order.
On Friday afternoon around 1 p.m. police pulled over a driver in the Dundas and Clark Street area. The 20 year old driver was charged with driving without insurance and driving with licence plates not authorized for the vehicle.
And just a few hours later police received another call at 4 p.m. A 31 year old man was driving his vehicle along Ingersoll Road with his wife and two children. They stopped behind a van at an intersection. The van didn't move after the light changed to green so the 31 year old honked his horn. The van in front then continued driving. When the two vehicles met again at another intersection both men exited their vehicles and confronted each other. The 31 year old man was punched in the head, thrown to the ground, and choked. He was transported to Woodstock General Hospital and treated for a concussion and a large cut on his head. A 43 year old man has been charged with Assault Causing Bodily Harm.
