LETHBRDGE-- City Police have arrested a 62-year-old Lethbridge man for breaching the conditions of his release stemming from a previous charge of impaired driving causing death.

Douglas Bagnall has been charged with impaired driving causing death and driving with a blood alcohol over 80 mg% causing death - in relation to a collision that killed former Pikanii Band Councillor, teacher and sobriety advocate, Barney Provost.

The collision occurred June 25, 2018. At that time, police say a Toyota Corolla driving the wrong way on Highway 3, west of the Highway 509 intersection hit a Chevy Impala, killing the driver and injuring a 12-year-old girl.

Bagnall has failed to attend three separate court dates and has also failed to make at least six weekly visits to the police station. 

On the evening of January 15, police located the subject at a local hotel where he was found in breach of his release conditions and arrested.

At his court appearance on Wednesday, Jan 16, Bagnall was remanded in custody until Feb. 4 for a bail hearing, as the Crown opposed his release
