Tenant arrested twice a warning for everyone who currently is a Barrie Landlord or anyone thinking about becoming a Barrie landlord

According to a report in the Barrie Examiner there was a huge dispute between a Barrie landlord and her tenant last week.

According to the Examiner report, police officers were called shortly before 2 in the morning to a property located near the streets of Stanley and Livingston. The police were called because of a reported dispute.

According the police, the tenant lived in the basement rental apartment at the property. He was enraged and was “smashing” his very own belongings!

The landlord of course feared for her safety and called the police. The man was taken into police custody for a period to allow him to become sober.

The man was released at around 7:30 a.m. sobered up.

He returned to his rental basement apartment. Once there is again became enraged when he found the door locked.

He smashed the door open. Then he again threatened the landlord.

The landlord called the police again.
