A Portage la Prairie RCMP officer has been charged with careless driving after using his cruiser car to knock down a suspect riding a bicycle.

The 33-year-old suspect was the subject of a disturbance call at a Portage residence on July 17. He fled the scene on a bicycle and an officer pulled up his cruiser in front of the suspect, striking him at a low speed.

Although no serious injuries were reported, the Independent Investigation Unit began to look into the matter.

The officer in question was issued a ticket for careless driving under the Highway Traffic Act.
