STEPHENVILLE A 50-year-old Stephenville man has been charged with assault and several other charges from an incident at a nightclub on Main Street in Stephenville on Thursday night.
The other charges are: mischief, causing a disturbance and possession of a controlled substance.
Cpl. Chris Dawe of the Bay St. George RCMP said the man was arrested after police were called to the nightclub on Main Street at about 8:30 p.m. after the man refused to leave after being asked to do so by an employee.
He is alleged to have assaulted an employee of the club and caused some damages in the club when he resisted leaving, which resulted in the mischief charge. When police arrived and made the arrest, they found a controlled substance on the man.
Police released the man on Friday morning on a promise to appear in court on May 5.
