RCMP in Gleichen, east of Calgary, say that an officer at the detachment is now facing criminal charges.

On October 16, Constable Depagie was charged with assault causing bodily harm and unlawful confinement.

Police say the charges stem from a public complaint made to the detachment in relation to an arrest made in November 2013.

Depagie is scheduled to appear in court on November 6.

The RCMP says his duty status is under review.
