Tillsonburg councillor Max Adam was charged with three crimes by Norfolk County OPP, stemming from an alleged incident that took place Dec. 31, 2017.
The 32-year-old Adam was charged with mischief under $5,000, causing disturbance and breach of recognizance. He appeared in court Jan. 2 and was released on a $1,000 bond to a surety. His next court appearance is Jan. 16.
The alleged incident took place at The Kilnyard bar in Simcoe, which Adam owns.
None of the allegations have been proven in court.
Adam did not respond to emails sent through the Town of Tillsonburg’s contact link for councillors or to The Kilnyard. Calls to The Kilnyard went unanswered.
Adam was not in attendance at the annual Mayor’s Levee Jan. 7 at the Annandale National Historic Site.
Following Mayor Stephen Molnar's speech at the levee, Molnar was asked how the charges could effect Adam's duties as a councillor. Molnar said it was the first he’d heard of the alleged incident.
Adam was elected to Tillsonburg council for his first term in 2014.
