Two men are facing charges after they confronted Mounties and threatened to drive their vehicles into the local detachment — all to gain access to a prisoner the RCMP had arrested.

Queens District RCMP responded to a complaint shortly after 4 a.m. on Sunday and arrested a 46-year-old man.

As they were attempting to leave, police say officers were confronted by two men who tried to get into their police cruiser and displayed threatening behaviour towards the arrested man.
