BC RCMP says the Independent Investigations Office has been notified about a Nelson incident resulting in the injury of one man.

Just after 5PM on Wednesday, November 18th, Rural Nelson RCMP officers recieved a report of an intoxicated man causing a disturbance and refusing to leave a residence in the 1400-block of Ash Street.

The man was found outside but resisted when an officer attempted to bring him into custody and a struggle ensued; a second officer helped transport the man to hospital for assessment of injuries.

The IIO is investigating to determine if police actions are linked to the man's injuries.
