The incident, near a health board parking lot, prompted police intervention at 5:30 am. Abbott, 34, handed an illegally possessed gun to Adrian Matthew, 39, by a derelict truck.

In court, Abbott’s defense cited intoxication as a factor, claiming he found the gun in a bar bathroom.

The magistrate discharged the ammunition charge for Matthew but fined him $3,500 for brief possession.

Abbott faced fines of $12,000 for gun possession and $15,000 for discharging.

The magistrate emphasized the danger of firing even into the air. Abbott’s family agreed to settle both fines by January 2.
