An Abbotsford police officer’s emergency button was accidentally triggered during a scuffle with an uncooperative individual causing numerous nearby first responders to rush to the scene earlier this afternoon.
An Abbotsford Police office was initially called to the Abbotsford Salvation Army on Gladys Avenue to handle a person who was under the influence and causing problems at the centre.
After the individual was approached by an officer, a bit of a struggle ensued and during that struggle an emergency button was pushed on the officer’s radio that sent out alerts to nearby first responders that the officer was in trouble.
Responders arrived at the scene, but the situation was under control and no known injuries were sustained by either the officer or the individual.
The man is currently in police custody.
