A Regina-based RCMP mem­ber is fac­ing charges of forcible con­fine­ment and ut­ter­ing threats, stem­ming from an off-duty in­ci­dent.In a me­dia re­lease, the RCMP said the ac­cused has been placed on “ad­min­is­tra­tive du­ties” and an RCMP Code of Con­duct in­ves­ti­ga­tion has been or­dered.Ac­cord­ing to RCMP, “the mem­ber’s name is not be­ing re­leased pub­licly in or­der to pro­tect the iden­tity of the vic­tims in this mat­ter.”The RCMP launched an in­ves­ti­ga­tion on Dec. 18 into a Dec. 10 in­ci­dent that wasn’t re­ported un­til eight days later.The mem­ber was not on duty at the time the al­leged of­fences oc­curred, RCMP said. No fur­ther de­tails were pro­vided.The ac­cused, who made a brief court ap­pear­ance be­fore a jus­tice of the peace shortly after be­ing ar­rested and has been re­leased from cus­tody with sev­eral con­di­tions, is sched­uled to ap­pear again on Jan. 3.
