Bracebridge OPP laid charges as a result of a disturbance at a motel on Manitoba Street.

This past Tuesday, December 28th, 2021, at approximately 9:00 p.m., upon arrival officers, attempted to arrest the accused, who resisted. During the arrest, two large dogs attacked the officers. One was successfully stopped with the use of a taser. The second, however, did not respond to multiple taser attempts and was shot dead due to concerns for officer safety.

No officers were injured in the attack say police.

As a result, 40-Year-old Ryan Girodat, of Brockton just south of Owen Sound, has been charged with:

  • Causing a Disturbance
  • Mischief

The accused is scheduled to appear before the Ontario Court of Justice in Bracebridge, on March 8, 2022.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to contact the Bracebridge OPP at 1-888-310-1122
