Off-duty Saskatoon police officer assaulted by alleged impaired driver
It began when police received word that a truck was being driven erratically in the area of Lamarsh Road on Friday evening.
The off-duty officer then called to say the driver was also ignoring traffic signals.
The driver eventually stopped in an alley in the 600-block of Lamarsh Road.
The off-duty officer then confronted the driver.
Police said the off-duty officer was then assaulted by the driver but was able to restrain the driver until patrol officers arrived.
The 24-year-old driver is facing charges of impaired driving, refusing to give a blood sample and assault.
