An Ottawa police officer charged with assault in a domestic incident in Brockville has been re-arrested for breaching one of his bail conditions, city police said.
City police Insp. Scott Fraser said Friday morning he could not reveal any details of the latest incident.
"He had a lot of conditions and he breached one," said Fraser.
"It happened almost immediately following his release."
The accused, whom police are not naming, was in custody and scheduled to appear in Brockville court Friday afternoon for a bail hearing on a separate charge of breach of recognizance, said Fraser.
The 48-year-old officer was off duty Tuesday when the attack reportedly occurred in Brockville, where he lives.
Police are not releasing the man's name "in order to protect the victim's privacy and prevent further victimization, as the charge relates to a domestic situation."
The Ottawa police professional standards unit is also investigating the assault.
The officer had been assigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of the criminal charges.
