An RCMP officer charged with impaired driving from an incident in Wollaston Lake last year has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Cst. Kevin Granrude was off duty when he rolled an RCMP ATV just outside the community on June 10.

Granrude was thrown from the vehicle and sustained serious head injuries during the incident.

The Mountie was charged with impaired driving earlier this year.

He entered the not guilty plea during a court appearance yesterday.

Granrude’s trial has been scheduled for September 2 in Wollaston Lake.
