A man who was shot by Regina police last month will face a preliminary hearing in April.
Kendall Bradley Bryant of Kamsack is charged with assaulting a police officer, assault with a weapon, possession of cocaine for the purpose of trafficking and possession of proceeds of crime under $5,000.
On Tuesday, lawyers set a preliminary hearing for April 17. If a judge determines there’s enough evidence to hold a trial, Bryant has elected to be tried by a Court of Queen’s Bench justice.
The 24-year-old was arrested after an incident in the 700 block of McTavish Street on Jan. 22.
Police were investigating a report of a suspicious vehicle when the car accelerated toward one of the officers.
The cop fired one shot through the windshield and the bullet penetrated the dashboard before hitting the driver in the right leg.
The officer then tried to enter the car through the driver’s side window and was dragged 20 to 30 feet.
Both the suspect and the officer were taken to hospital, where they were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
