Native man made up story about being abandoned by officers





A Native man is apologizing to law enforcement in Winnipeg, Manitoba, for making up a story about being abandoned by police officers

Evan Maud alleged police officers drove him to the edge of town, took his jacket and made him walk home in December 2010. He was charged with public mischief after an investigation determined that the incident never occurred.

As part of a restorative justice process for Native offenders, Maud is making a public apology today.
