Manitoba’s police watchdog is investigating after a man suffered a broken arm while officers tried to get him to leave a Brandon business.
Brandon police responded to the incident Sunday at around 12:30 a.m., after the 60-year-old man and a woman refused to leave a restaurant, the Independent Investigation Unit said in a news release.
The man kept arguing with officers and still refused to leave. While officers “attempted to assist him in leaving,” he sustained a broken arm, the release says.
He was taken to the Brandon Regional Health Centre, and treated for a broken humerus.
The IIU was notified of the incident shortly afterward. A broken humerus meets the definition of a serious injury under the unit’s regulations, prompting a mandatory investigation.
Anyone with information or video of the incident that may help with the investigation are asked to contact the police watchdog at 1-844-667-6060.
No additional information is being provided at this time as the incident remains under investigation.
