Local RCMP Stun Gun Control

After what it calls, “soft physical control,” failed to subdue an alleged intoxicated and suicidal man, the Fort St. John RCMP says it was forced to use a Conductive Energy Weapon early today, before he was apprehended and taken to hospital.

The police investigation began about 11.30 last night, when a man’s ex-wife provided voice mail messages, text messages, and documents to police, to support her concerns he intended to harm himself.

Shortly before two o’clock this morning police then located a suspect and his vehicle, at the Looney Tunes Night Club.

He was arrested under a section of the Mental Health Act after he refused to leave the bar.

However, according to a police release he became actively resistant, and he was taken to the ground by arresting officers using, “soft physical control.”

The release goes on to say he continued to resist arrest, and the Conductive Energy Weapon…in touch stun mode…was used, after he attempted to kick the arresting officers.

At that point he was placed in handcuffs, and despite still resisting arrest, he was controlled and escorted to a police vehicle without anyone being injured.

He was then taken to Fort St. John hospital, where he was admitted after a medical assessment.

Police say at this time charges are not being recommended.
