Health officials in Quebec say Sen. Patrick Brazeau is recovering in hospital in critical but stable condition after being admitted early Tuesday morning with serious injuries.
Brazeau was admitted to a hospital in Hull, Que. around 1 a.m. Tuesday and underwent successful surgery, officials said, adding his injuries were not life-threatening. Brazeau is now recovering at a hospital in Gatineau.
There are no details on the type of surgery, and Quebec Provincial Police said there was no ongoing criminal investigation.
Details about how Brazeau ended up in hospital remain unclear.
According to CBC News, police and EMS officials arrived at Brazeau’s home in Mayo, Que. just after 10 p.m. Monday. Brazeau was found with serious injuries and was taken to hospital.
Brazeau was granted an unconditional discharge last October despite having pleaded guilty to reduced charges of assault and possession of cocaine.
A more serious charge of sexual assault was dropped due to a lack of evidence.
Brazeau is also facing a criminal trial, set to begin in March, for fraud and breach of trust related to his Senate expenses.
