A Peel police officer is facing criminal charges after he was involved in a fight at a Banquet hall in Brampton.
The off duty officer was attending a wedding reception in the early morning hours of Sunday April 10 when two men were assaulted.
Chief Jennifer Evans was made aware of the incident and immediately ordered the professional standards bureau to conduct an internal investigation.
As a result of this investigation, Constable Jasjit Sandhu (badge #3935) has been charged with one count of assault and one count of assault causing bodily harm.
Sandhu has been suspended with pay since the start of the investigation and will appear at a Brampton courthouse on May 18.
