Patrick Brazeau is getting help.
The 39-year old suspended senator was arrested early Thursday morning at a private residence in Gatineau following a domestic disturbance call. He was officially charged with two charges of assault, possession of cocaine, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm and breaching previous release conditions.
He pleaded not guilty to all charges but, according to reports, was detained in custody overnight and appeared in court on Friday.
The Canadian Press is reporting that he has now been granted $5,000 bail on condition that he undergo treatment at a rehabilitation facility in Quebec.
"He has to go to Maison Mélaric for treatment to deal with an alcohol and drug problem," Crown prosecutor Stéphanie Robitaille told reporters, according to the Globe and Mail.
The reports note that Brazeau has three days to report to facility and while there, or at home, must adhere to a strict curfew of between the hours of 11 p.m. and 6 a.m.
