RCMP have arrested and charged 46-year-old Trevor Michelin after police allege that he assaulted a police officer and damaged a police car.

Just after midnight overnight the accused attended the RCMP detachment in Grand Falls-Windsor.

Michelin spoke to an officer inside the building and then departed on foot. Moments later, officers observed him sitting on the hood of a marked patrol car in the parking lot, pulling on the wiper blade of the vehicle.

Officers then exited the detachment and engaged with the individual. He was advised to move away from the patrol car and fix the wiper blade.

Michelin then grabbed the wiper blade a second time and an officer removed him from the hood of the vehicle.

The officer was not injured, there was damage to the wiper blade and windshield.
