A Justice of the Peace in Yellowknife has ordered Inuvik's only resident veterinarian to remain in jail for now.
Peter Krizan is facing 10 charges in relation to a confrontation with police last Wednesday in Inuvik.
RCMP say they got a report that Krizan had threatened someone. Police say they went to the 41-year-old's house to arrest him, but he resisted and assaulted one officer.
Krizan has had numerous confrontations with police during his time in Inuvik, including many convictions for violating court orders.
