Lethbridge Herald — Cardston

A man who was believed to be threatening a community peace officer 
outside the Cardston RCMP office is now facing four charges of assault 
with a weapon on a peace officer.
When a man confronted the officer outside the detachment on Tuesday, 
police say, RCMP officers were called to make an arrest. Responding to 
a series of commands, they say, the man put down the knife and 
attempted to flee on foot.
A suspect was arrested a short distance away, police say. The knife 
was seized, and no injuries were reported.
Brenden Kurt Eagle Speaker, 24, of Standoff has been charged with 
possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, resisting or obstructing 
a peace officer and failing to comply with a probation order, in 
addition to the four assault-with-weapon counts.
  Eagle Speaker was later released and ordered to appear in Cardston 
provincial court on Monday
