Lethbridge's police chief says he welcomes the investigation Alberta's police watchdog is investigating after a 12-year-old girl was injured while Lethbridge police were arresting her mother.
Police responded to a call at a Lethbridge home on Nov. 16, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team wrote in an emailed release.
The caller, a 33-year-old woman, had provided her name to police and said occupants of the downstairs unit in her building were screaming and smashing objects.
Police arrived and arrested the female occupant downstairs. But when officers returned to the station, they found the caller had provided a fake name and had outstanding warrants for her arrest.
