Michael Edward Babcock is facing one count each of assaulting a peace officer with a weapon, flight from police, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and obstructing a peace officer, all stemming from an incident in Barriere on Nov. 15.

RCMP Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said the injured Mountie did not miss any work due to the incident.
