Two people are facing charges for attacking police officers in Williams Lake.
RCMP Staff Sgt. Brad McKinnon, officer in charge, said the incident happened Wednesday, July 19, near Shoppers Drug Mart.
“Members were flagged down for two males engaging in a consensual fight, which resulted in one getting knocked out,” he told the Tribune.
Police attended, the knocked out male was checked out and BC Emergency Health Services was called, he said.
