Contact banned for brothers on peace bonds

A pair of Hedley brothers were in court last week in Princeton.

A long-standing family dispute resulted in a peace bond being issued in Princeton court Thursday.

Brad James Nendick, 53 of Hedley, entered into the bond to resolve charges of assault against his brother. He is prohibited from going near the man’s home for one year.

Court heard the accused’s brother is already under conditions to not have contact with Nendick, related to a previous incident.

“This is a very sad state of affairs,” said Judge Ellen Burdett.

Crown counsel indicated police have been called nine times to settle conflicts between the two men.

“The police resources you are using to settle these disputes are astounding,” said Burdett.

Nendick said the assault on his brother on May 18, occurred because “he disrespected my mother too many times.”

When issuing the bond, the judge learned both brothers work at Copper Mountain Mine, so the normal conditions of not attending the victim’s workplace could not be imposed.
