At the time,  RCMP said the officer was  responding to a high priority weapons call – which turned out to be unfounded – in the area of 1st Avenue and Ospika.

The officer was northbound on Ospika when his police car left the road and crashed into a power pole.

Court records now show,  Constable Aaron Bartsch has been  charged with  driving a vehicle without  due care and attention, and excessive speeding relative to conditions.
