A 31 year old Brighton man has been charged after a routine traffic stop turned ugly.
At 2:45 a.m. Thursday, Quinte West OPP pulled over a vehicle on Wooler Road.
A passenger was not wearing a seat belt and after a records check, he was found to be in breach of probation.
He was arrested and while in the back of the cruiser, he began kicking the doors, so much they could not be properly closed.
The Brighton man’s charged with mischief and two counts of failing to comply with a probation order.
He is in Belleville court today.
