The charge is the result of an incident that occurred on January 27, 2009. The matter was investigated internally and the Calgary Police are not yet releasing the name of the officer, citing a recently instituted policy against publicly identifying members who have been accused of an offence while carrying out their duties. Under the policy police will release the name of the officer if they are convicted. This charge comes on the heels of assault charges against three other officers for allegations of excessive force for two separate incidents during traffic stops in 2009.
