A second Yellowknife man was also arrested but he was later released without being charged.
Law said whenever possible, there's a simple way to stay out of situations such as this.
"If you know that someone is going to be in the area that either you don't get along with or that you think that you could get into some kind of confrontation with, avoid the area,” she said. "Avoidance is always the best bet."
