Charlottetown resident jailed for chainsaw disturbance


A P.E.I. man who was described as being aggressive as he was turning a chainsaw on and off on a Charlottetown street was sentenced recently to 50 days in jail on two charges.

Robert Dwayne Kelly, 46, appeared before Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance and damaging property.

The court heard that on Dec. 21, 2018, Kelly was outside his residence with his belongings, which included a gas-powered chainsaw.

Crown attorney Lisa Goulden told the court witnesses who described Kelly as being aggressive said they saw him turning the chainsaw on and off.

In a separate incident on Feb. 1, the police responded to a call about a dispute at a Euston Street address in Charlottetown.

The court heard Kelly started hitting and damaging a vehicle that belonged to one of the residents.

Kelly addressed the court to apologize for what he called “idiotic” behavior.

He said it wasn’t appropriate to be using the chainsaw at the time of night when he was and he hadn’t meant to intimidate anyone.

Before sentencing Kelly, Douglas told him he was familiar with his criminal record.

“We need to stop meeting this way,” Douglas said.

Douglas gave Kelly credit of 10 days for time spent in custody, leaving him with 40 still to serve on intermittently.

Kelly will be on probation for one year.
