An Ohio man must pay a $5,000 fine after pleading guilty to ignoring the commands of a Customs and Border Protection officer at the Peace Bridge Port of Entry into Canada in March. 

Michael White II, 19, of Canton, Ohio was one of the occupants of a charter bus attempting to make entry into Canada on March 15 when he walked directly into a CBP officer who had told him to stop. White ignored the command and continued to walk past the officer. 

The officer then raised his arm to stop White from walking passed him, and White swung at the officer and missed after physical contact was made.
