A Guelph male faces several charges after police were called Friday to a business just outside downtown.

Approximately 9:25 a.m., staff of a business on Gordon Street near Wellington Street East reported a male had been in their washroom for 25 minutes and was refusing to leave. Officers arrived a short time later and asked the male to leave, but he refused.

The male was arrested under the Trespass to Property Act, but resisted by flailing his arms and kicking his legs. The male was eventually handcuffed and taken into custody, but refused to identify himself. A search incident to arrest revealed a small amount of suspected crystal methamphetamine.

A 44-year-old Guelph male is charged with resisting arrest, obstructing police, possessing a controlled substance and failing to leave a premises when directed. He was held for bail and has been released to appear in a Guelph court Feb. 22.
