The Special Investigations Unit has charged a North Bay police officer with assault causing bodily harm. The constable in question is Christian Elia. In March 2014, police responded to an altercation at a pub involving several customers and during the incident a 40-year-old man was assaulted. The SIU determined that the man was hurt by a police officer. The agency says because Elia is in court July 5th, it won’t be releasing any more information.
