Suspects in protective custody
TRACY McLAUGHLIN Two of the three teens charged with second-degree murder following the death of a Collingwood man are being held in protective custody at the Penetanguishene superjail. Justin Spring, 19, his brother Matthew Spring, 18, of Innisfil, and Jake Workman, 18, made a brief appearance in court, Wednesday. They sat in handcuffs in the prisoner's box. They are scheduled to be be back in court Aug. 31. Police say the teens were charged following an altercation that ended up in tragedy after Bradley Hubbard, 42, who died at the Putting Edge, a glow-in-the-dark golf course in south-end Barrie at around 9:30 p.m., Saturday. Hubbard, the father of seven children, was playing golf with his girlfriend and his two daughters, aged eight and four, when an altercation occurred. Witnesses say the suspects were being rowdy and scaring patrons. When they were asked to stop by Hubbard's girlfriend, Stephanie Reid, they allegedly became verbally abusive toward her. Hubbard, a large man who stood six-foot-four and weighed 280 pounds and was known to associate with members of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, came to intervene and the incident escalated into a physical altercation. "It is a tragic situation that was never meant to happen," said lawyer Angela McLeod, who represents Matthew Spring. "Mostly for Mr. Hubbard's family, but also for these boys, they are good kids. Heck, they were playing mini golf on a Saturday night instead of hanging out in the bars. I think that speaks of their nature." Continued on Page 3
