Sheremetta back in court for assault charge

Ex-Vanderhoof mountie Ryan Sheremetta appeared in court in Kamloops for a preliminary inquiry on Monday, May 2, facing charges of assault and obstructing justice.

Ex-Vanderhoof mountie Ryan Sheremetta appeared in court in Kamloops for a preliminary inquiry on Monday, May 2, facing charges of assault and obstructing justice.

Sheremetta, 31, was initially charged in July last year after he allegedly punched another man, Ian McLeod, in a street fight outside a bar whilst off-duty on March 7 in Kamloops.

He was assigned to desk duties following the alleged incident.

The seven-year veteran, who has been working for the Kamloops detachment since 2005, also appeared in B.C Supreme Court after the preliminary hearing to set a date for his trial.

The officer will face a three-day trial before a judge but with no jury on January 23.

Sheremetta was previously investigated in 2004, whilst working in Vanderhoof, for the fatal shooting of Kevin St. Arnaud, who was the suspect in a robbery. The shooting was found to be in self-defence by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP, but Sheremetta was suspended later on for giving misleading evidence at the coroner’s inquest in 2007.
