No Jail Time For Man Responsible for Nackawic Fire Hall Blaze
A man who was charged after he crashed his truck into the Nackawic Fire Hall and municipal building has been fined $2,700 and will lose his driver's license.
Fifty-six-year-old Edwin Samuel Bradley of Nackawic was arrested on July 21 and charged with impaired driving, refusing a breathalyzer and breaching the conditions of an earlier court order.
Bradley's pickup truck burst into flames in the crash, igniting a fire that destroyed the building and the Nackawic Fire Department's equipment.
Bradley underwent a 30-day psychiatric assessment following the incident. He was scheduled to stand trial in Woodstock Provincial Court on Wednesday, but instead pleaded guilty to two of the charges.
As part of the plea agreement, the impaired driving charge was withdrawn. Bradley will be prohibited from driving for 2 1/2 years.
