RCMP in La Ronge said one man is charged with assaulting a police officer and weapons offenses in an arrest early Sunday morning.

Mounties said they responded to a report of a vehicle speeding on Highway 2, eventually stopping it on Cook Crescent.

It is alleged the lone occupant Jared Ballantyne exited the vehicle and fled on foot.

Officers deployed their taser and arrested Ballantyne.

Authorities say one officer sustained minor injuries during the arrest. A machete was recovered at the scene. Ballantyne appeared in provincial court Monday.
