A man whose allegations against a Winnipeg police officer made national headlines spent the weekend in custody after being accused of engaging in criminal mischief at a downtown apartment block.
Henry Lavallee, 50, made bail Monday morning after Winnipeg police arrested him Friday in a Feb. 17 incident at 411 Cumberland Ave. where a large window near the front entrance was smashed.
He faces a charge of mischief under $5,000 and is presumed innocent. The Crown alleges Lavallee put his shoulder to the window after on-site security asked him to leave and he refused.
Lavallee denies being involved. "I don't know nothing even about it," Lavallee told provincial court Judge Dale Harvey at his brief bail hearing.
His police-misconduct complaint after being arrested in November 2008 led to an officer being charged with aggravated assault. Lavallee alleged Const. Ryan Law kicked him. Law was tried and acquitted.
