Halifax cop charged with assaulting homeless man at shelter

A video camera captured an incident that led Nova Scotia's police watchdog to charge a Halifax Regional Police officer with assaulting a man and breaking his nose at the Metro Turning Point shelter in February.

Const. Laurence Gary Basso, 37, is charged with assault causing bodily harm, public mischief and breach of trust.

On March 4, Halifax Regional Police contacted Nova Scotia's Serious Incident Response Team about a complaint from a member of the public alleging an officer assaulted a 54-year-old man at the shelter on Feb. 25.
