APTN National News
Some Manitoba musical stars came out Thursday to a fundraiser for Evan Maud, a Winnipeg First Nations man who claimed he was taken on a starlight tour by police.
Two weeks after Maud told APTN National News that he had been taken by police to the outskirts of the city and forced to walk back, Winnipeg police claimed he had made the story up.
Maud was charged with mischief.
Maud, however, is sticking to his story and plans to plead not guilty at his first court appearance on Monday.
His uncle, band Coun. Joseph Maud of the Skownan First Nation says Maud needs to raise money for a lawyer.
Juno-nominee Little Hawk and Nipinak attended the fundraiser in Winnipeg.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Evan Maud’s allegations have been proven false and he has publicly apologized to the Winnipeg police service.
