City police have pressed charges against a veteran officer who’s also the son of a former police chief.


The longtime officer was investigated for an alleged off-duty incident dating back to December 2005, based on information filed by another police member.


Const. Mike Wasylyshen, 31, has been charged with three counts of assault and two counts of uttering threats. He is the son of the city’s former police Chief Bob Wasylyshen.


A police spokesperson refused to release more details, explaining that the matter is now before the courts and scheduled for a first appearance on Sept. 7, 2007.
