“Since the incident occurred off-duty, any potential for internal discipline will depend on the outcome of the criminal case and cannot be investigated until the courts process is finished,” police added.

Calgary police said the incident was reported to the Alberta Director of Law Enforcement, and then left with CPS for further investigation.
