Elderly man roughed up and arrested in Ottawa

You have probably seen this video, but I’m putting it here just in case you have not.

The 78-year old man, Gerry Charlebois, is 4’10” tall and is probably light enough for me to pick up and carry, and I’m almost as old as he is.

His offense? Beeping his car’s horn. Mind you, this was before the injunction against horn honking was passed.

A bystander filmed while two officers pulled over Gerry Charlebois, 78, for beeping his horn.

‘What did he do wrong?’ the bystander asked. ‘None of your f****** concern, man,’ one officer responded.

Charlebois sustained injuries to his arms, hands, shoulders and knees. He was later fined $118 for ‘unnecessary noise’ but has not been criminally charged.
