RCMP have charged a 34 year old man with five charges including two counts of assaulting a peace officer after an incident in La Loche early Saturday morning.
RCMP say officers approached a group of people around 3:30 a.m who were drinking on a public road. The officers asked the group to pour out any remaining alcohol, but Ramsey Herman allegedly would not co-operate. When officers tried to take him into custody, he reportedly resisted and assaulted the officers.
The situation came to an end when some additional officers came to the scene and a taser was used.
Herman made his first court appearance Monday.
