Arens arrested on new charges

A man charged with impaired driving causing death after a Canada Day crash in 2010 has been arrested again and is now facing new charges.

Arens, 35, of Red Deer, is facing new charges of failing to comply, driving without insurance, driving a vehicle that was not registered and failing to hold a valid driver’s license. He was to appear on those charges April 3rd. An arrest warrant was issued after he failed to appear in court.

He was arrested April 4th after turning himself into police.

Arens has previously been charged with impaired driving causing death, impaired driving causing bodily harm, dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, three charges of refusing to provide a breathalyzer sample and breach of recognizance. He has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

These charges stem from a crash on Canada Day in 2010. A 13-year-old boy was killed in that crash.

A trial was scheduled to be held earlier this year, but was cancelled because Arens no longer had a lawyer.

Arens appeared in the Court of Queens Bench this past Monday to have new trial dates set, but his case was put over until May 6th.

He will also appear in court today to face the new charges. The prosecutor’s office is also expecting a bail hearing will take place at that time as well.
