Three Manitoba police officers are facing charges after three separate probes by the Independent Investigation Unit.
A constable with the Winnipeg police has been charged after an arrest injured a 36-year-old man.
The incident on June 16, 2018 saw police arrest the man after his vehicle was being driven erratically throughout the city.
