Young woman sues Williams Lake RCMP for alleged assault

A young woman from Williams Lake is suing the RCMP in that city, accusing them of beating her up when she was 17.

Jamie Haller claims she was running from a gang in 2011 when she was arrested and assaulted.

A judge cleared the officer who arrested her, Constable Andy Yung, of any wrongdoing.

But he did admit to punching the teen — after she allegedly wrapped her legs around his head.

Haller has now launched a civil suit, claiming she suffered a hemorrhage of her eye, blurred vision and psychological distress.

None of her allegations have been proven in court.

  1. It seems that the police have changed in dealing with people in general. Years ago the beating’s were casual and took place in the drunk tank and 4+cops would punch the be- Jesus out of guys for just be there! drunk or not, funny when an arresting officer was the prosecutor, young men did not have the money for a lawyer and just entered a guilty plea for things like causing a disturbance by swearing. Some justice for so many from small towns and got a criminal record to boot!

    • You are right ! There were lots of times that prisoners tripped while being escorted and ended up with bruises and missing teeth….amazing what was common behaviour a few decades ago !
