The Serious Incident Response Team will investigate a situation involving the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in New Brunswick.

The RCMP presented its side of the story in a statement released late Friday afternoon.

The incidents, about which few details were provided, allegedly occurred after Codiac Detachment Mounties arrested a 51-year-old man on the evening of June 29.

The arrested man was taken to a cell at the RCMP detachment in Shediac, as the cells at the Codiac detachment were closed at the time.

Police passed handcuffs around the citizen's wrists and ankles.

As he was being moved to the cells, an altercation took place between the man and four members of the RCMP, writes Corporal Hans Ouellette in a press release. One of the members suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

RCMP says the man in custody did not report any injuries.

Described as independent, the Nova Scotia Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) investigates serious or sensitive incidents involving the police. New Brunswick does not have a similar team, but the two provinces have an agreement allowing the Nova Scotia team to conduct such a survey.

A member of the RCMP is assigned to administrative duties during the investigation.
