An eight-year veteran of the Windsor police service has been docked 24 hours of pay following an incident more than a year ago.
Const. Aaron Naklie pleaded guilty to one count of discreditable conduct in Monday's police act hearing.
On Dec. 30 2011, Naklie was on the scene of a car crash when a vehicle drove through the scene, which had been blocked off by police.
Later that evening, the same individual was allegedly involved in a road rage incident.
In a statement of facts Naklie went to the complainant’s home and issued a ticket for passing through the collision scene.
He then discussed the allegation of road rage with the complainant, telling him what some people might have done if they had been subjected to his road rage.
The individual then filed a complaint with Windsor police.
“It will be a positive result,”says defence lawyer Andrew McKay. “Everyone understands, he was trying to give the guy a break. He chose some inappropriate language and he's learned from that."
McKay says Naklie's intentions were not to instill fear. He says Naklie was only trying to give the young man some raw facts of life.
He has no other discipline on record. Naklie has accepted responsibility for his actions and has issued an apology.
