FREDERICTON - A Fredericton police officer now faces assault and threat charges in relation to separate incidents.
Sgt. Tim Sowers was charged today with one count of summary assault by Kennebecasis Regional Police.
That's in addition to a charge of uttering threats that was laid Dec. 22 in relation to an incident that occurred in June.
On Monday, Fredericton Police said Cpl. Lou Lafleur was also charged in connection with an impaired driving incident that occurred last year.
Miramichi police laid the charge against Lafleur, who has been placed on administrative desk duty by the Fredericton force until the matter is resolved in court.
Investigations will be conducted under the Police Act, once criminal proceedings are concluded.
