An RCMP officer from British Columbia who was involved in a fatal taser incident at Vancouver Airport a year ago will be charged in the death of a motorcycle rider on the weekend.
On Saturday night, the officer was off duty and driving a Jeep when a collision occurred with a motorcycle ridden by Orion Hutchinson, 21, in Delta, a city near Vancouver.
The motorcyclist died at the scene. The officer will be charged with impaired driving causing death and with exceeding the .08 blood-alcohol limit.
The RCMP officer had been moved into the Olympic Integrated Security Unit, which is preparing for the Vancouver Olympics. He was one of four RCMP officers who were involved in the taser death of Polish immigrant Robert Dziekanski last October at Vancouver International Airport. An inquiry into that incident has just been delayed one more time.
