Suspended senator Patrick Brazeau arrested

Patrick Brazeau was arrested early this morning at a home in Gatineau.

The suspended senator had apparently been arguing with a woman on the balcony of a home on Labrosse Boulevard.

Gatineau police say Brazeau appeared to be intoxicated when they showed up at around 4 o'clock.

He was taken into custody and is expected to be court later today to face unspecified charges.

Brazeau was named to the Senate by Prime Minister Harper in 2008.

He was expelled from the Conservative caucus in 2013 after being charged with domestic assault and sexual assault and was suspended from the Senate last fall.

He recently took a job as a manager of an Ottawa-area strip club.

    Brazeau is such a piece of CRAP, he claims he has to work to support his children, yet pays nothing towards them. Takes a job as manager at BareFax strip club in Ottawa. Maybe the Duff can apply for the opening

    He has been rapidly going downhill ever since he tried to take on Justin Trudeau in a boxing ring. Maybe the leaders of the NDP and Conservatives should take note of the future that awaits them after the next election and start preparing for it. LOL
