A 20 year-old man who alleges  he was taken on a starlight tour by Winnipeg police says he is too afraid to file a formal police complaint.

Evan Maud says he was pushed into an unmarked police car and taken to the outskirts of the city where he was dropped off and threatened he would be Tasered if he didn’t run.

The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs is now working with Maud and his family to file a complaint. Grand Chief Ron Evans says the organization has also received similar complaints from other people who say they have been taken on starlight tours.

APTN National News reporter Tiar Wilson has more.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Evan Maud’s allegations have been proven false and he has publicly apologized to the Winnipeg police service.
