A 32 year old Saskatoon man is custody after a disturbance that began on the University Bridge and continued until the 300 block of 25th Street E.
On June 6, 2018 at approximately 7:00 p.m., an SPS member on patrol noticed a male swearing and yelling at people in vehicles as he biked in and out of traffic along 25th Street. As the officer turned his vehicle around, he observed that the male had dismounted his bike and was continuing to yell and swear at passing motorists. After the male stopped in the parking lot of a business in the 300 block, he was approached by officers. When confronted, the male became more agitated, running back into traffic and attempted to engage them in a physical confrontation. As a result, conducted energy weapons (CEW) were deployed and the male was taken into custody. The male was subsequently transported to Royal University Hospital to be examined.
As is the case with all CEW deployments, the incident will be reviewed in accordance with Policy.
