Man gets probation for fight with police
A Red Deer man is serving probation for charges laid after he got into a fight with a police officer.
Robert Stuart Fleming, 60, was charged with assaulting a police officer causing bodily harm, resisting a police officer and causing a disturbance.
Booked for trial in Red Deer provincial court on Dec. 20, Fleming was sentenced to 18 months probation after pleading guilty to all three offences.
The charges were laid on Dec. 28, 2012, when Red Deer City RCMP were called to reports that a drunk man was refusing to leave a restaurant.
Police alleged at the time that the officer responding to the call was punched and kicked in the face.
