Accused cooling heels after assaulting police

Domestic dispute turns into violent encounter with RCMP members

Daryl Anderson appeared in Kamloops provincial court on Sept. 18 and was sentenced to 13 months in jail, and given a two years probation and a five-year firearms prohibition after entering a guilty plea to two accounts of assaulting a police officer.

The 45-year-old 100 Mile House resident also entered a guilty plea to one count of possession of a controlled substance and two counts each of breach of probation and breach of an undertaking.

The charges stemmed from a domestic dispute between Anderson and his common-law wife Alana Sinclair, 30.

Around 6:45 p.m. on June 4, 100 Mile House RCMP were advised of a domestic dispute in progress at an apartment building located on the 700 block of Cariboo Trail.

The first officer on scene attended the residence where he encountered Anderson and Sinclair who were involved the dispute.

While attempting to determine what was occurring, Anderson brandished a knife and made threatening gestures to use the knife against the officer. After a brief standoff, he fled from the building.

It is also alleged Sinclair then produced a knife making threats against police, as well as causing property damage to the building and harm to herself. A brief standoff ensued and eventually she relinquished the knife to police.

An RCMP member conducting patrols in the area located Anderson on Cedar Avenue. The officer attempted to arrest him and the suspect responded violently. He was subdued, arrested and taken to detachment cells.

Sinclair was also charged for her part in the incident. She is also accused of threatening an officer with a knife.

Sinclair is back in 100 Mile House provincial court on Sept. 29.
