A P.E.I. man who broke a window at his tenant’s home and challenged him to a fight was recently given a suspended sentence.
Glen Allan MacQuarrie, 49, appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to damaging property.
Crown attorney Nathan Beck told the court that on Sept. 17 at around 7:30 p.m., Queens District RCMP responded to a call from MacQuarrie’s tenant.
The tenant told police MacQuarrie broke a window and challenged him to fight.
Beck told the court the tenant said MacQuarrie was upset because he didn’t think the rent was high enough.
MacQuarrie later gave a statement to police admitting he broke a window and issued the fight challenge, Beck said.
The court heard MacQuarrie had a prior record that included forcible entry and several counts of assault.
With the suspended sentence, MacQuarrie will be on probation for one year, which includes a condition that he have no contact with the tenant.
