An independent investigation is underway looking into whether a police officer used excessive force during an arrest in Lake Country.

Wednesday morning just after 1 am, a 911 call was received from a woman who was concerned about a family member living at a different residence.

In gaining entry to the home, a man barricaded himself inside a bathroom with a sharp object which he used to harm himself.

He was rushed to hospital for medical treatment.

An investigation will determine whether police actions or inactions are linked to the man’s injuries.
