The Independent Investigation Unit is investigating following the arrest of a 20-year-old in Nelson House.
RCMP in the community responded to a complaint of an intoxicated male in a residence Saturday, and officers were required to use force to control the suspect.
The suspect was later transported to the Nelson House nursing station, where he was treated for a fracture in his right hand.
Nelson House RCMP informed the IIU the next day, and even though a fracture is not considered a serious injury the unit’s civilian director determined that it is in the interest of the public to investigate.
The investigation is ongoing.
