KAMLOOPS — A Kamloops RCMP constable has been charged with assault causing bodily harm.

The BC Prosecution Service says the charge has been approved against RCMP Cst. Joedy Todd Henderson in relation to an alleged incident that occurred on Aug. 25 while he was on duty in Kamloops.

Henderson's first court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 11 in Kamloops Provincial Court.

"The charge was approved by an experienced Crown counsel who is located in a different area of the province than the officer under investigation, and who has no prior or current connection with this officer," says spokesperson Dan McLaughlin.

Staff Sgt. Annie Linteau, spokesperson for E Division RCMP, says Henderson is currently on administrative leave.

No other information is being released at this time.
