Fort Simpson mayor says RCMP used excessive force in detaining her intoxicated brother

 


The mayor of Fort Simpson, N.W.T., has filed a complaint against the RCMP, alleging an officer was too aggressive when dealing with her intoxicated brother.

"It was humiliating. To me, I would have been humiliated just by how he was treated," said Darlene Sibbeston.

She didn't see the incident herself, but arrived minutes later to find her brother Darrell Sibbeston pinned to the ground by an RCMP officer, with a knee in his back.
