Computer Repair 101 – Just Hold the Repairman Hostage

Halifax actress and playwright Carol Sinclair was arrested and is now facing criminal charges after a repairman says she threatened to hold him hostage until he fixed her Internet connection.

According to Halifax Police, Ms. Sinclair was enraged with Mr. Scott. “She told the technician, in a tirade, that he was not leaving until her Internet was working and she told him she was keeping him hostage,” Constable Jeff Carr said.

“She implied that she had a gun, although he didn’t see one.”

The repairman told Ms. Sinclair he could fix her computer, but first had to retrieve a disc from his truck, according to the police version of events. Ms. Sinclair followed Mr. Scott downstairs, but he was able to run away and drive to the Aliant office.

Mrs. Sinclair denies the allegations and says that she merely stated, ‘I don’t want to hold you hostage, but would you mind hanging around until the other technician arrives so that the two of you can sort it out.’ She was arraigned in Halifax Provincial Court Friday and is now free on conditions including that she have no contact with the repairman or any employee from her ISP.
