Charlottetown councillor Eddie Rice has been served with a stay away order from Holland College.

A spokeswoman with the college informed The Guardian on Monday that an incident involving Rice was referred to Charlottetown Police Services. Rice was served a stay-away order from the college’s Prince of Wales campus.

The college was not willing to offer any further comment or detail on the incident besides saying it took place July 13 at 5:35 p.m.

Rice declined to comment when approached by The Guardian at a city council meeting Monday evening.

The Guardian was unable to reach anyone Monday with Charlottetown Police Services for comment.

Rice was first elected to Charlottetown council in 1981, where he represents Ward 1 and is chairman of the city’s water and sewer utility committee.

In May 2011, Rice was charged under the Highway Traffic Act after the vehicle he was driving clipped a bicycle on a crosswalk on York Lane. The girl pushing the bike was not seriously injured.
