Mountie charged with assault
A Prince George RCMP member has been charged with assault in connection with an on duty incident that occurred on November 12, 2010.
On November 12, 2010, members of the RCMP were called to assist hospital staff with a male who was described as verbally abusive and combative. Two members attended and assisted staff with securing the male.
After the male was placed in restraints, one of the two officers left, while the other (Cst. Emon) stayed behind. The investigation looked into allegations of assault by Cst. Chris Emon.
A complaint was filed and Prince George RCMP launched an Internal Code of Conduct Investigation as well as a Criminal Investigation. The investigative findings were forwarded to Crown and one count of Assault under Section 266 of the Criminal Code has been approved. Cst. Emon is scheduled to make his first court appearance on August 17, 2011.
The RCMP Internal Code of Conduct is still underway and Cst. Emon’s duty status is under review.
