A man arrested in Tryon, P.E.I., last week following a disturbance at a home now faces a total of 17 charges, including 14 related to weapons.

Three counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm.
Three counts of unsafe storage of a firearm.
Three counts of possessing a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized.
Two counts of assault.

He was remanded into custody and is scheduled to return to court on June 20.
