A man from the Louis Bull First Nation goes to trial in spring, accused of injuring a police officer while trying to avoid arrest.

Charges were laid on Feb. 5 against Clinton Scott Roasting, 29, and his younger brother, Shawn Kyle Roasting, 22, by police investigating reports of shots fired at a home on the reserve.

Police allege that the older of the two brothers hit one of the RCMP officers with an ATV and broke his leg during the ensuing arrest.

Clinton Scott Roasting goes to trial in Wetaskiwin Court of Queen’s Bench on May 13, charged with offences including criminally negligent operation of a vehicle causing bodily harm and discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life.

Charges against his younger brother were dropped in June.
