East Algoma OPP has had to arrest a man for blocking a Crown road.

OPP say back on July 5th, officers and a conservation officer went out on William Lake Road where a gate had been erected denying access to Williamson Lake, Smoky Lake and a logging area north of Iron Bridge.

A man was told that he had 48 hours to remove the fence located on Crown land.

However, on August 4th, police had to once again respond to two complaints where another gate had been erected across the road.

When confronted, the man became agitated with police and was arrested.

66-year-old Robert Parker of Iron Bridge was charged with mischief and interfering with the lawful use of property.

The accused is to appear in Blind River on August 30th.
