On Tuesday Hanover Police Service and West Grey Police Service responded to numerous incidents of mischief, dangerous driving and disturbing the peace within the two municipalities, according to a news release issued Thursday morning.

A suspect identified as Bradley Young, 52, was arrested by Guelph Police Service later in the day and returned to Hanover Police Service.

Police allege that shortly before noon Young drove a blue pick-up truck across several sidewalks and on several lawns leaving skid marks. He stopped at several businesses in Hanover and West Grey, exited his vehicle and threw eggs at the buildings, while being in what police describe as "a fit of rage."

According to the news release, Young also attended a dentist office in Hanover yelling obscenities at employees and patients of the dentist office while throwing eggs inside the office, as well as the Hanover Civic Centre, where he was yelling obscenities at Town of Hanover employees.

Police believe that all the locations were targeted by Young.

Young has been charged with five counts of mischief and one count of causing a disturbance in West Grey, along with four counts of mischief, two counts of dangerous driving and two counts of causing a disturbance in Hanover.

On Wednesday Young was taken to bail court in Walkerton and later released from custody on a recognizance of bail. One of his conditions being not to attend Grey or Bruce Counties unless for legal reasons.

He is scheduled to return to court Aug. 18 to answer to his charges.
