Winnipeg cop accused of erasing own speeding ticket; already facing assault, weapons charges

A Winnipeg police officer already charged with assault and separately for improperly storing a weapon is facing new allegations — this time for using the police computer system to try to get out of a speeding ticket.

Mantioba’s police watchdog announced Wednesday Patrol Sgt. Sean Cassidy has been charged with fraud, unauthorized use of a computer, and obstruction of justice.

The Independent Investigation Unit (IIU) of Manitoba says Cassidy was caught speeding while on-duty in a private vehicle by photo radar Oct. 1, 2019.

The police watchdog then alleges Cassidy used the police computer system to erase his ticket.
