OPP officer charged in assault on driver, 78

A Leeds County provincial police officer already facing numerous criminal counts now has been charged in an attack on a 78-year-old motorist.

Const. George Duke, 52, of Brockville, is charged with assault, uttering threats and forcible confinement, Ontario Provincial Police said Wednesday.

Officers with the OPP’s professional standards bureau arrested Duke following an investigation into an assault on a Quebec driver, 78, after a vehicle collision on Sept. 2. The victim suffered “moderate” injuries, police said.

Duke, a 20-year OPP officer, was charged in November with theft over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime and drug possession. He also faces several firearms charges.

His arrest was part of an 18-month investigation that also resulted in obstruction and drug trafficking charges against two other Leeds OPP officers.

Duke was released on the latest charges after promising to appear in Brockville court on Jan. 22.
