Coun. Thomas Steen faces new domestic violence charges
Winnipeg city councillor allegedly breached no-contact order, court documents say
Winnipeg City Councillor Thomas Steen spent Friday night in jail on new domestic violence charges.
The order was issued after he was charged with assault and uttering threats in connection with an incident with a woman at a Winnipeg restaurant in May.
Court documents allege Steen violated that no-contact order in late June.
Steen appeared before a justice of the peace on Saturday and was released after paying a $1,500 bond.
Steen is scheduled to appear in court in August to face his original assault charges.
CBC has requested comment from Steen, but he has not yet responded.
