Charges were laid after an incident Dec. 7, 2013, when he was pulled over by an RCMP officer on patrol. Details surrounding the incident have not been released.

An additional charge of failure to appear has been added to the list from a missed court date last month.

This was the fourth time the case was set over, but specifics on the delay were not available. The previous appearances were in early January, late January and late March.
