Suspended Senator Brazen Brazeau Before The Courts Again, This time Charges of Assault, Threats & Drug Possession

WATCH: Patrick Brazeau arrives at Gatineau courthouse.
TORONTO – Suspended senator Patrick Brazeau is facing charges of two counts of assault, uttering death threats, cocaine possession and breach of bail conditions.
He arrived at a Gatineau, Que., courthouse in handcuffs Thursday morning after police responded to a domestic disturbance call on Boulevard Labrosse around 4 a.m. where they found a man and a woman in an altercation outside of the home.
Gatineau police spokesman Pierre Lanthier said a 39-year-old man was arrested after a 911 phone call.
A clean-shaven Brazeau arrived at a Gatineau courthouse in a brown police van just before 10 a.m.

Police said another man was in the house at the time of the disturbance call and told police he was assaulted by the man in custody, while the accused said the man inside the house assaulted him.
The 50-year-old man is also facing assault charges.

Brazeau was suspended from the Senate last November for allegedly collecting allowances and expense claims he was not entitled to.
He was formally charged by the RCMP in February with fraud and breach of trust.
Brazeau was also charged with assault and sexual assault following an incident last February. He has pleaded not guilty to both charges.
