VANCOUVER â€” A Surrey RCMP officer is scheduled to appear in Vancouver provincial court next month, accused of assault in connection with an alleged incident involving security at a PNE concert last September.
Const. Daniel Dallaire was off duty during the incident alleged to have occurred Sept. 15, 2013. He was charged with one count of assault following a Vancouver Police investigation.
Const. Brian Montague, a VPD spokesman, declined to discuss the nature of the allegation, as itâ€™s â€œnow before the courts.â€
Dallaire will be back in court on May 27.
A press statement released by Surrey RCMPâ€™s Chief Supt Bill Fordy notes that a Code of Conduct investigation is also underway and that Dallaire â€œremains on operational duties at this time.
â€œAs the matter is before the courts, and the investigation was handled by Vancouver Police, we are not able to provide any further information or details,â€ the RCMP statement reads.
