Traffic-stop arrest of 84-year-old to be investigated by Quebec's BEI

Quebec’s independent investigations unit, the BEI, has been assigned to probe a traffic stop last week by Thérèse-De-Blainville police that left an 84-year-old man with a severe head injury.

According to information garnered thus far by the BEI, the incident occurred March 3 at 12:30 p.m. when a police officer pulled over a motorist driving with a suspended licence.

However, Thérèse-De Blainville police say the driver refused to obey the officer’s orders and an altercation broke out during which the motorist is alleged to have tried to strike the officer.
