While at a bar, this client tripped and bumped into some guy. The guy became very agitated. Laurent’s friend started to fight with this guy. The fight became very intense.
The accused tried to break up the fight however a witness said he saw the accused strike someone over the head with a beer bottle. Moreover, the guy involved in the fight with his friend said that someone smashed a beer bottle over his head. The client denied that he had done this. Accordingly the matter was set for a trial.
At trial, David Anber persuaded the Crown prosecutor to agree to a section 810 peace bond (a restraining order) as long as the client made a donation to charity.
