A Winnipeg woman has been ordered to pay $2.5,500 to the RCMP after she was caught on camera refusing to cover her face while driving in an undercover operation, the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench ruled on Wednesday.
The Crown says the video, which was released in February, shows Nastya St. Louis telling the RCMP she will go to court if they don’t cover up her face, which she later apologized for, court documents say.
St. Lucie’s lawyer has argued the video was edited and that she should not have been told to cover the face.
She was ordered to repay $1,946.63 in fines and costs to the Manitoba Police Service and pay $1.5 for each year of her probation.
She was also ordered to sign an undertaking to stop offending and not drive a motor vehicle while under arrest, and to stay off the roads for a year.
A judge ordered St. Lucia to complete a three-day anger management program, but the Crown says St. Clair is free to choose to remain in jail, while the RCMP were not.
