WINNIPEG – The Independent Investigation Unit is looking into a fight that involved an off duty Winnipeg Police officer.
Around 5:00 PM Friday afternoon, an off duty cop noticed two men fighting and chasing each other in and out of traffic around St. Mary’s Road and Marion Street.
The officer intervened, resulting in one of the men suffering from a fractured jaw.
He was treated and released from hospital then detained at the Remand Centre.
Since someone was seriously injured, the province’s police watchdog is required to look into the incident.
The IIU is asking for any witnesses or video footage that could help with their investigation.
