After turning himself in to Parkland RCMP on Tuesday, Feb. 16, he was arrested and charged with two counts of contravening the Public Health Act, and one criminal charge of failing to comply with a condition of an undertaking.
Following a bail hearing before a Justice of the Peace, Coates was to be released on conditions. However, he remained in custody overnight after refusing to agree with said conditions. Yesterday in Stony Plain Provincial Court, he continued his refusal. A judge’s order has been issued compelling him to attend court on Wednesday, Feb. 24.
