Provincial Police have charged a member of the Canadian Armed Forces Military Police after an incident in Trenton late last week.
Quinte West OPP say they launched an investigation into a break-in on Bay Street last Friday.
Investigators say the on-duty military police officer entered a home, assaulted the male occupant, and pointed his military-issued firearm at him.
Thirty-six year-old Matthew Horner has been charged with break and enter, being unlawfully in a dwelling, pointing a firearm and assault with a weapon.
Horner was one of a group of Military Police who agreed to a peace bond after his involvement in a Trenton bar fight in August of 2010.
He was released on conditions to appear for a January 17th court date.
