Conditional discharge for 2019 knee-on-neck police incident
Nathan Lasuik, 42, admitted to assaulting the trio outside James Richardson International Airport on Aug. 1, 2019.
However, he argued police used excessive force in restraining him, violating his Charter rights to life, liberty and security of the person.
[Provincial Court Judge Dave] Mann ruled the officers did violate Lasuik’s Charter rights but rejected an argument by defence lawyer Mitch Merriott the charges be stayed outright. Instead, Mann granted Lasuik a conditional discharge that included one year of supervised probation.
