RCMP officer removed from Nunavut community after video surfaces of arrest

An RCMP officer in Kinngait, Nunavut, has been removed from the community and placed on administrative leave after a video surfaced on social media showing what appeared to be an RCMP officer using the door of a police pickup truck to run down an intoxicated man late Monday night.

In a news release Tuesday, police say the contents of the video gave rise to the concern of the actions of the officer conducting the arrest.

Immediately after watching the video, the release says commanding officer of the V Division RCMP Chief Supt. Amanda Jones issued two investigations — an independent external statutory investigation and an internal investigation into the actions of the officer.
