For the second time this month, a Waterloo Regional Police officer has been charged in connection with an off-duty incident.
Waterloo Regional Police say a veteran member of the force who is a special constable in court services was arrested on Saturday and has been charged with mischief — interfering with property.
The arrest was made after Guelph police investigated an incident that occurred earlier this month in Kitchener.
They say the officer will not be named to protect the identity of the victim.
Police say the officer has been placed on administrative leave while a review is being conducted.
On Aug. 10, Waterloo police announced that another officer had been arrested following an investigation into incidents that had occurred in Hamilton and Kitchener.
In that case, a second-year officer was charged with assault after an investigation by Hamilton police.
Again, police said the officer’s name was not being named in an effort to protect the victim.
