On December 27, 2022 at 8:00 pm, police responded to a report of an intoxicated male causing a disturbance in a residence by destroying property. Others in the home were unable to prevent his actions from escalating and requested police intervene; however, the 50-year-old male acted aggressively toward police and threw a full bottle of beer at them.  The officers were not injured.

In order to gain compliance from the male and arrest him, officers deployed a conducted energy weapon.  Once the male was in custody, he was lodged at Brandon Police Service and will be released once sober to appear in court on February 23, 2023 on charges of Assault with a Weapon and Assault Peace Officer.
