A Vancouver Island RCMP officer has been exonerated in connection with a slow-speed moped chase in Duncan, two years after the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. recommended charges against him.
Const. David Buchanan was charged with dangerous driving causing bodily harm after a moped chase on Feb. 20, 2016. The driver was injured during the incident.
Buchanan’s actions during the chase were investigated by the Independent Investigations Office of B.C. (IIO). The office found Buchanan might have committed an offence and submitted a report to Crown counsel. Crown approved a charge of dangerous driving causing bodily harm.
