Retired Royal Newfoundland Constabulary Sgt. Tim Buckle is the subject of a criminal investigation by the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT), the RNC confirms.
Police media spokesperson, Const. James Cadigan, said normally the RNC does not comment on any investigation, unless there is a risk to the public's safety.
However, he said the RNC wants to correct any false information or impression created by Buckle.
On March 7, Buckle tweeted, "Hey @ParadigmSlip, spent 2.5 hours in interrogation room voluntarily giving a audio/video cautioned statement yesterday! Just wanted to assure you @RNC_PoliceNL is hard at work on your behalf! Surprised THEY are investigating their own tho... No SiRT??"
