This story has been updated since initially published.
A University of King’s College resident was arrested on the night of Fri., Nov. 2, 2012 on campus after police were called to the school due to a confrontation with an Emergency Health Services attendant.
Paramedics were assessing a male for an unrelated issue when the attendant was confronted by an intoxicated 25-year-old male. Police were called at 11:30, and Sean Hellinger was then arrested for one account of assault, as well as assault to a peace officer.
Hellinger was detained over night and appeared in court on Nov. 3, 2012, but could not meet the conditions for release. He was still in custody during his Nov. 5, 2012 court date, but was present on Nov. 6, 2012.
Hellinger pleaded guilty and was charged with assault and assaulting a peace officer.
Update: Nov 8: UNews wrongly reported that Hellinger was a resident of Dalhousie. Hellinger lives in residence at King's College. Dean of Residence Nick Hatt could not provide a comment for publication but, unews.ca will continue to follow this story and provide updates as the story develops.
