EDMONTON — An Edmonton police constable faces one count of assault in relation to an on-duty call three years ago.
Police say Dustin Adsett was responding to a report of a disturbance in January 2013.
Adsett is a seven-year-member of the Edmonton Police Service and remains on active duty.
The charge follows an investigation by the police department's professional standards branch and a recommendation from Alberta Justice.
Police say they will not comment further as the matter is before the courts.
