(Calgary-Police-Assault)

A Calgary police officer must spend 90 days in jail, to be served on weekends, for using excessive force against a suspect during an arrest.

Const. James Othen was found guilty of assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon back in February for his role in a traffic stop where Clayton Prince was injured trying to run from police.
