ENFIELD, N.S. – The independent agency that investigates serious incidents involving police in Nova Scotia is looking into the case of a man who was injured while inside the RCMP detachtment in Enfield.

The Serious Incident Response Team says the 45-year-old man was arrested Friday for being intoxicated in a public place.

The team says the man was injured when there was an altercation while he was being booked at the detachment.

Paramedics later examined the man and determined he could stay overnight in the RCMP cells.

However, the man was taken to hospital the next day when he continued to complain about his injuries.

The team says it was later determined the man was suffering from a broken rib.
