Const. Todd Depagie is a member of the Gleichen detachment, southeast of Calgary.
He has been charged with assault causing bodily harm and unlawful confinement.
RCMP spokeswoman Cpl. Sharon Franks says an investigation began after a member of the public complained about an arrest in November 2013.
Depagie is to appear in provincial court on the Siksika reserve Nov. 6.
Franks says the constable remains on the job but his status is under review.
