 The 35-year-old Stephenville man busted for alleged impaired driving by drugs after leaving a domestic dispute in Stephenville Tuesday has been released from police custody.

Wade Curnew was taken to hospital Wednesday morning for psychiatric assessment and appeared before provincial court Judge Catherine Allen-Westby again in the afternoon. Legal-aid lawyer Jamie Luscombe and Crown attorney Susan Gallant said there was no need for further assessment.

Gallant consented to Curnew’s release pending a number of conditions — including a 12 p.m.-7 a.m. curfew, no contact with the alleged victim of the domestic dispute and two police officers he was accused of threatening and no consumption of illegal drugs or alcohol.

He is scheduled back in court June 9.

Const. Burns Anderson said police were called to a domestic dispute incident in on Ross Avenue in Stephenville, but were told the man had already left the house and was driving a vehicle.

Police spotted the suspect’s vehicle, stopped him and a drug recognition expert carried out an evaluation. Curnew was subsequently charged with impaired operation of a motor vehicle by drugs, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle, and one count of resisting arrest.

In relation to the incident at the house, the man is alleged to have assaulted a woman and is facing two counts of assault, two of uttering threats, and one of unsafe storage of a firearm.
