The Independent Investigation Office (IIO) was notified of the incident and subsequently
conducted an investigation.
Today, the BC Prosecution Service (BCPS) announced that Chilliwack RCMP Const. Yannick Leblanc has been charged in connection with the incident.
He is scheduled to make his first court appearance April 23.
The BCPS said that as the matter is now before the courts, they are unable to provide any further information at this time.
