A man was arrested after he allegedly vandalized Brandon University and took a swing at a police officer while being arrested.
Early Saturday, the Brandon Police Service was called to the university after a campus security guard reported an unwanted person on the premises.
As officers arrived, a 22-year-old man kicked and damaged one of the university’s signs. As police took steps to arrest the man, he took a swing at an officer, hitting him in the chin. The officer wasn’t injured in the scuffle.
Police have charged the suspect with mischief, resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.
He is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 20.
