|RCMP Const. Bruce Lofroth has pleaded guilty to assaulting a young man during an arrest in 2014.|
The Terrace RCMP officer was charged after video of the violent arrest was obtained by local newspaper, and posted online. He will be sentenced in October. In the video — filmed in May 2014 — a teenager can be seen lying on the ground while being punched in the head by the RCMP officer. Later, the young man is pushed into a police vehicle.
The youth had been charged with assaulting Lofroth but those charges were later dropped.
