N.S. youth facing charges after allegedly using racial slur, assaulting RCMP officer

A male youth is facing multiple charges after allegedly using a racial slur, assaulting a Nova Scotia RCMP officer on Thursday.

Police say they responded to reports of a possible impaired driver in Digby, N.S., at 3:43 p.m.

When officers arrived a young man, who was the passenger of the vehicle, threatened police.

As police tried to arrest the youth for allegedly making those threats he reportedly uttered a racial slur at one of the officers and punched him in the face.

The youth is now facing charges of uttering threats, assaulting a police officer, mischief under $5,000 and resisting arrest.

He’s been released under conditions to a parent and is scheduled to appear in Digby Provincial Court in September.

The driver of the vehicle was found to not be impaired and was not charged.
