Former Calgary Stampeders all-star Joffrey Reynolds received a stern warning Friday from a city judge — the authorities are watching him.
Provincial court Judge Harry Van Harten agreed to release Reynolds from custody on a dozen charges related to breaching court conditions.
Reynolds was arrested at his Calgary residence on July 8 and charged in connection with allegations he breached his probation for violating his house arrest on July 4.
Van Harten ordered Reynolds freed on a non-cash bail with a condition he report to probation as they direct him.
“You’ve got to understand that people are looking at you with intense scrutiny,” Van Harten warned.
“Don’t mess it up.”
Defence counsel Bjorn Harsanyi said four of the charges against Reynolds, involving alleged breaches on May 29 and 30, occurred before he even had a probation officer assigned to him.
