GERALDTON – Crimebeat – A Wisconsin man has been fined $1,500 for driving a motorized vehicle on a restricted road. Bradley Slagel of Ridgeland pleaded guilty to traveling on a closed road.
Court heard that on June 19, 2012, a Ministry of Natural Resources conservation officer noticed vehicle tracks on the Marshall Lake access road, 60 kilometres northwest of Nakina. Further investigation revealed that Slagel, owner and operator of a Nakina resort, had driven two clients on the restricted road the previous day to access his remote outpost camp. The clients received tickets for traveling on a closed road.
Justice of the Peace John Guthrie heard the case in the Ontario Court of Justice, Geraldton, on July 24, 2012.
