Woman facing charges after TV crews lodge complaint with New Brunswick police Add to ...

A 36-year-old woman is facing charges after an alleged confrontation with three television news crews in eastern New Brunswick.

The Mounties say they arrested the woman Friday after receiving complaints from three journalists and two technicians who work for three separate networks.

The RCMP say they were told the crews’ vehicles and equipment were seized Oct. 19 and they were told to leave the Rexton area, where protesters opposed to exploration for shale gas had gathered near a compound operated by an energy company.

The vehicles and equipment were returned the same day.

The woman from the nearby Elsipogtog First Nation has been released on the condition she return to court Feb. 26.

Police say they expect to arrest more people.
