Mountie, Kelowna, British Columbia, charged with assault in January 2020 Wellness check


Kelowna, British Columbia — According to the British Columbia Prosecutor’s Office, Kelowna’s RCMP police officer was charged with assault in connection with last year’s health checkup.

The prosecution said in a statement, Const. Lacy Browning has faced an assault after conducting a wellness check in Kelowna on January 20, 2020.

This year, a civil lawsuit was settled between Browning and Monawan, who were nursing students at the University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus.

After police found the student lying semi-consciously in her apartment, a statement from the King’s allegations claimed that Browning’s act was “abuse.”

A defense statement filed by Browning, the Attorney General of Canada and the Secretary of Public Security and Solicitation in British Columbia, denied any misconduct, alleging that police officers did not use reasonable and unnecessarily force in the situation. ..

None of the proceedings have been proved in court.

Browning will appear in the Kelowna District Court on September 24th.

In an email statement, BC RCMP stated that its members are in managerial positions and that the job status of its officers is continuously evaluated. Mounties states that the internal code of conduct for this case remains ongoing.
