A Big River First Nation man is facing several charges after an alleged altercation with police officers.
Big River RCMP say early Friday morning officers attempted to stop a vehicle on the reserve, which then fled from the officers.
The officers then confronted the man at a home who then allegedly attempted to assault one of the officers with a weapon.
Police were eventually able to subdue the man with help from police dog services and the nearby detachments of Shellbrook and Spiritwood.
41-year-old Lonny Lachance, of Big River First Nation, now faces several charges.
They include assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, resisting arrest, and driving while suspended.
Lachance is due in court on Monday.
