At left: Cranbrook’s 2013 Citizen of the Year Ken Bridge of Cranbrook is pictured violently resisting arrest and getting taken down by the long arm of the law, Aux. Const. R. McGee and Cpl. Barry Graham of the Cranbrook RCMP. Just kidding, folks! Many of Cranbrook’s local celebrities and business owners found themselves locked up as a part of MADD Kimberley/Cranbrook’s campaign to raise funds for its programs. Once picked up by officers at their place of business or arrested on the spot, the celebs had to raise a certain amount of money to bail themselves out. Katryna Sigurdson, MADD Kimberley and Cranbrook community leader, said the goal for the event was to raise $2,500. Of that Kenny Bridge, from Bridge Interiors, raised the notable sum of $1,110. Pictured at right: Radio personalities Derek Kortschaga, JJ Johanson of Bears Eatery in Kimberley and Steve Mercandelli of Cranbrook Dodge were among others who spent time locked up.
