On April 21, 2012 at approximately 18:00 hrs, Terrace RCMP responded to a complaint of a possible Impaired Driver. RCMP members arrested a 47 year old male suspect who was taken into police custody.
While in police custody, the male was non-compliant in cells and had to be physically restrained by the police. The male subsequently suffered a head injury and was taken to the local hospital three times during the night. Doctors determined that the male should be transported to the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster B.C. for medical care.
Upon last report this morning, the injured male was listed in serious but not critical condition.
The New Westminster Police Department confirms that four members of their Major Crime Unit are conducting an independent investigation with respect to this incident.
