Some Background

NetNewsLedger reported on October 18, 2015 that Tyler Neil Alan Boily,  then 32-years-old of Thunder Bay appeared in court and was remanded into custody on the following charges:

Just after 3:30 am. on October 9, 2018, patrol officers observed a vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed as it swerved off Arthur Street onto May Street, failing to stop at the red light.

Officers followed the vehicle that stopped in the laneway behind the Columbus Center. The male driver exited the vehicle brandishing a knife and began to flee. An officer pursued him and the male then pulled out a hammer and swung it at the officer.

A second officer assisted in getting the male handcuffed after a struggle. A search of the male resulted in several weapons being seized.

Tyler Neil Alan Boily, 32-years-old of Thunder Bay appeared in court and was remanded into custody on the following charges:
· Resists Arrest
· Dangerous Driving
· Assault Police
· Weapons Dangerous

In 2015, Tyler Boily plead guilty to impaired driving and was given a five-year sentence, as well as a ten-year driving ban and a ten-year weapons ban.

This was as a result of a collision on Highway 61 that saw two people killed as a result.

He was credited at the time for the time he had served and was jailed in a minimum security treatment centre for forty months. He ended up serving two years of that time at a minimum security treatment facility in British Columbia.

None of the new charges have been proven in court.
