NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. - A man is in hospital with wounds police believe are self-inflicted after an encounter with officers, prompting an investigation from B.C.'s police watchdog.
New Westminster police say officers responded to a report of a domestic disturbance and found a man with a knife.
Staff Sgt. Paul Hyland says a taser was used and the man was arrested.
Police say the man suffered a significant injury and officers contacted the Independent Investigations Office, which is reviewing the case.
Hyland says charges have been laid against 28-year-old Christopher Lindsey Gilkin of New Westminster.
Police say Gilkin faces one count of possession of a weapon and two counts of disobeying a court order.
