A man arrested following a hit-and-run in Port Hawkesbury has pleaded guilty to some of his charges.
RCMP say officers were called to a hit-and-run in the parking lot of the Causeway Shopping Centre in December.
They say a 26-year-old Port Hawkesbury man, who was treated by paramedics at the scene, suffered minor injuries.
Police say the driver fled, but they later arrested Forest Douglas Baker, 22, of Port Hawkesbury.
Baker, who was released from custody on strict conditions shortly after his arrest, originally faced five charges- dangerous driving causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, uttering threats, failing to remain at the scene and impaired driving.
He entered not guilty pleas to all of his charges in April; he was scheduled to stand trial in Port Hawkesbury Provincial Court Monday.
Instead, Baker pleaded guilty to uttering threats, impaired driving and dangerous driving; his remaining charges will be dealt with when he returns to court for a sentencing hearing Nov. 6.
