A Belleville Police officer has been charged by the province’s Special Investigations Unit.
Constable Jeff McNevin, of the canine unit, is charged with assault causing bodily harm.
The incident occurred on January 10.
A statement released by the SIU says that in the early afternoon hours, after a short pursuit by police, Nolan’s pursued vehicle crashed in the area of the Public Works Yard building located at 75 Wallbridge Crescent.
He left the vehicle, and was later located in the works yard by officers and a police dog.
There was “an interaction” and Nolan sustained serious dog bite injuries to his right leg.
As a result of the investigation, the SIU charged Constable McNevin, the handler of the dog.
The SIU gets called to investigate whenever a member of the public is injured in the course of a police investigation.
Constable McNevin is scheduled to appear in court on May 24.
