A 42-year-old man has been charged after three police officers were injured in an altercation outside a home in Bowmanville, Ont. on New Year’s Day.

“A physical struggle ensued and the male was taken into custody,” police said in a news release issued Monday.
“Three officers received minor injuries during the arrest.”
Police say a suspect was charged with assault and assault of a peace officer in connection with the incident.
