An aboriginal man in Manitoba has admitted he lied about police officers dropping him off on the outskirts of Brandon and forcing him to walk back in the cold. Jay Moosetail told the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network that officers threatened to make him walk and uttered racist comments after he left a house party on the weekend.
He said he decided to get back at police by going on Facebook and posting a story about a cold walk home. The post has since been removed.
The Brandon Police say that all of the man's allegations are being taken seriously and that they have requested an outside investigation.
