A 17-year veteran of the Saint John Police has been charged with assault with a weapon, according to the force.
Constable Nicholas Roy was charged after an investigation by the Kennebecasis Regional Police Force.
The investigation was prompted by a public complaint.
CBC News has reached out to Saint John Police for comment but have not received a response.
In a statement provided by the force, Chief Robert Bruce said the force holds members to the highest standard and promised transparency during the upcoming trial.
"We will provide the public with further updates as the court process permits and we remain confident in the judicial process."
Roy has been put on administrative duties with no public contact until the court process has concluded.
He will appear in court on July 8.
