Police Officer Charged in Assault Causing Bodily Harm Case Going to Trial

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: A trial date for a Lethbridge Regional Police officer charged with assault causing bodily harm will be set later this month.

 

It's alleged that a little after 2-AM on May 5th of last year, Constable David John Easter tried to arrest a 20-year old male downtown for public intoxication. During the arrest he's accused of striking the victim, who then fell and hit his head on the pavement. The man ended up in hospital where he was treated for a serious head injury.

 

Following a preliminary hearing Monday morning, it was decided that there is enough of a case to go to trial, which will be set September 23rd.

 

Since being charged the 14-year veteran of the force has been relieved from duty with pay, pending the outcome in court.
