An Airdrie Constable who was charged in early April for assault with a weapon and uttering threats appeared in Calgary court earlier this week. He is due back in court at the end of June. 

The case was adjourned on Monday in Calgary court as the defence asked to obtain, review and wait for disclosure; which the accused is entitled to, to know the evidence the Crown prosecution plans to present in the case. The case will be back in court on June 27 for crown election.

Calgary Police arrested the RCMP officer after an investigation into a report of an assault in March 2024. The charges against 37-year-old Cst. Maxime Bedard stems from an altercation in northwest Calgary, in which it's alleged that he assaulted a man outside an apartment building when off-duty. While the victim fell after being struck he did not suffer injuries. 

According to a previous RCMP release, the Mountie has seven years of service with the RCMP and was suspended with pay.

"Once the criminal matter has been resolved, his duty status will be reviewed," The RCMP previously said. 

Mounties also said that the Alberta RCMP, 'believes in processes that seek the facts and it’s important that the actions of all those involved, including the police, are assessed fairly and transparently.'

"This is why, when we become aware of a situation that requires review, we immediately initiate internal review processes, separate from the legal process. The internal review will include the actions of the RCMP, the use of force during the incident, and the duty status of the member."

"As this matter is now before the courts, the Alberta RCMP is unable to provide further information," police said in April.
