Jury selection is set for the morning of May 14 for the trial of a Sylvan Lake man charged in connection with the beating of a local Mountie.

Jury selection is set for the morning of May 14 for the trial of a Sylvan Lake man charged in connection with the beating of a local Mountie.

Trial dates were set on Monday for Richard Ivan Tuck, 40, who is charged with aggravated assault, assaulting a police officer, obstructing or resisting a police officer and disobeying a court order.

The charges were laid following an incident in Sylvan Lake in the early hours of Sept. 11, 2011, when local Mounties were called to break up a fight.

Tuck’s son, Danton Rick Tuck, 18, was sentenced in August to serve 45 days in jail for assaults on three men, including the RCMP officer.

The third man accused in the incident, Stan Gilmour, 28, of Calgary, pleaded guilty earlier to resisting arrest and was fined $1,000.

Represented by Edmonton lawyer Arnold Piragoff, Richard Ivan Tuck is to be tried by a Red Deer Court of Queen’s Bench justice and jury, with the trial scheduled for May 14 to 17.
