A Seaforth man is in custody, waiting for a court date, after a police officer spotted an insecure load.

A Huron County OPP officer was patrolling Main Street in Seaforth on Thursday, Nov. 24 when a pickup truck with a load of wood in the back that appeared insecure was spotted.

Before the officer could initiate a traffic stop, the pickup pulled over to the side of the street.  Police say the driver got out and began to berate and threaten the officer.  When the man said he would not identify himself, the officer said he would have to take him into custody if he continued to refuse.  The driver threatened and ignored demands made by the officer.  He then made threatening moves with a weapon.

The officer had to use a taser to get physical control man.

A 53-year-old Seaforth man has been charged with uttering threats to cause bodily harm, obstruct police officer, possession of marijuana and, of course, travelling with an insecure load.
