Const. Edgardo Diaz charged with assault causing bodily harm

A Metro Vancouver transit police officer and his partner have been charged with assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon in relation to an altercation at the Rupert Street SkyTrain station in August 2011.

Transit police spokesperson Const. Ann Drennan says the charges are related to a fight between a man and Const. Edgardo Diaz and then Const. Michael Hughes that resulted in a complaint to the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner.

Drennan says the charges were laid following a lengthy investigation by the New Westminster Police Department.

She says Hughes has since left the police service.

More to come.
