NB man arrested after weekend standoff ordered out of Colchester County

A New Brunswick man arrested after allegedly barricading himself in an Onslow Mountain home has been ordered out of Colchester County as part of his release conditions.

Thirty-five-year old Nicholas Ian MacNevin-Cole was released from custody on a $500 recognizance during a bail hearing in Truro on Monday, where he was ordered to stay away from Colchester County except for court appearances and appointments with his lawyer.

MacNevin-Cole was arrested Sunday after RCMP responded to a report of a man with a firearm who had barricaded himself in an Onslow Mountain home.

According to the Truro Daily News, the Hanwell, New Brunswick man is charged with careless use of a firearm by discharging a 12-gauge shotgun into a wall at the home, assault with a weapon by holding the shotgun across a woman's throat, uttering a death threat to the woman and assault causing bodily harm.

He is due back in Truro Provincial Court June 13 to enter a plea.
