A Saskatchewan First Nations leader who has garnered a lot of attention after a victory in federal court will be heading back to court on a completely different matter. Chief Wallace Fox of the Onion Lake Cree Nation has been charged with a number of offences, including two counts of assault.

Mounties say the charges stem from a complaint made on May 18. The alleged incident took place at a home on Onion Lake.

He is also facing charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and uttering threats to damage property.

Police say Fox was arrested Monday without incident and will be in Onion Lake provincial court on Dec. 16.
