On November 20, 2023, shortly after 3:00 pm, police responded to a report of a fight at a business in the 1900 block of Queen’s Ave.  When police arrived, there were several individuals involved.  A 19-year-old female was arrested and lodged at Brandon Police Service until sober as she was no longer welcome at the business.

An 18-year-old male who was involved became aggressive with officers, charged at them, and punched on officer.  To gain compliance from the male, a conducted energy weapon was deployed.  He was arrested and lodged at Brandon Police Service.  He will be released once sober to appear in court at a later date on charges of Resist Arrest and Assault Peace Officer.
