The BC Prosecution Service has approved two charges against an Abbotsford police officer in connection with an arrest he made more than two years ago.
The service says in a news release that Const. Shaun Nagel has been charged with assault with a weapon and assault causing bodily harm.
The service says the charges were made in relation to a suspect's arrest in West Vancouver on Feb. 26, 2020.
It did not provide any other details because Nagel's case is before the courts.
It says the charges were approved by an ``experienced Crown counsel with no prior or current connection with the officer.''
Nagel's first court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 3 in North Vancouver Provincial Court.
