A series of court documents obtained by the Star this week show Reid was accused three times of violating court orders not to be in contact with Henderson-Bellman in the year before her death, including once around the time of his most recent arrest for possession of a loaded firearm in May 2020.
According to the documents, Reid was charged with assaulting Henderson-Bellman on July 14, 2019. He was released by Halton Regional Police without a bail hearing on a promise to appear with an order not to communicate in any way with Henderson-Bellman.
Less than a month later on Aug. 9, 2019, Reid was accused of breaching that order and with failure to comply with an undertaking. He was released the same day on $2,000 bail, with his mother as a surety and a continued no-contact order. He was also ordered to live at his mother’s home in Brampton and banned from having any weapons.
On Oct. 1, Reid was charged again by Halton police with breaching the condition not to contact Henderson-Bellman. He was also charged with possession of Oxycodone. He continued to be on bail with his mother as a surety, this time for $3,000, and another condition was added to his bail, requiring him to give his phone to his mother at her request.
Months later, on May 23, 2020, Reid was arrested by Peel Regional Police in Brampton and charged with several firearms charges, including possession of a loaded handgun, as well as impaired driving and breaching the court order that banned him from possessing a weapon. He was driving a 2019 Mercedes C300 at the time, according to the court documents.
Following this arrest, Reid spent six days in custody and was released on $20,000 bail after a bail hearing in Brampton court on May 28.
