For the most part, RCMP say people are behaving themselves at Country Thunder.
RCMP staff sergeant Craig Cleary says there were 32 calls for service in the last 24 hours. 6 of those were for assault with just one man being charged. Amongst the calls, there were 7 for disturbing the peace, 6 for public intoxication, one for sexual assault in which there was unwanted and inappropriate contact over clothing and one for public nudity.
Cleary says the call volume is down from last year, but members remain actively present which he hopes is part of the reason for complaints being down. He says the crowd is for the most part enjoying themselves and staying within the boundaries of the law.
Cleary added that while there were 32 calls for service inside the campgrounds, there were over 500 vehicle contacts made around the grounds in the area. Three speeding tickets were handed out with 41 other tickets for various traffic safety act violations.
As for Saturday, Cleary is expecting more of the same and for people to have fun and stay within the boundaries of the law so that the weekend can be remembered for all the right reasons.
