Ottawa father alleges bylaw officer punched him in the face, city denies 'any improper conduct' during ticketing altercation

An Ottawa father is fighting $2,010 in tickets levied by an Ottawa bylaw officer during the weekend crackdown on physical distancing after he refused to give his name while he and others were being ushered out of Michele Park on Saturday evening.

Obi Ifedi, 39, is planning to contest his tickets in court and is now considering legal action of his own, alleging the bylaw officer punched him in the face with a bare-knuckle fist following an altercation involving the officer and two Ottawa police officers. Ifedi said the incident was witnessed by his seven-year-old daughter and his neighbour.
