On April 25, 2019, a member of the Wood Buffalo RCMP detachment was charged with multiple criminal offences following a police investigation.
The charges result from an incident which took place on December 28, 2017. Constable Barnaby Seregelyi, 26, entered into an altercation with another motorist while off-duty and in his personal vehicle. Following an investigation, the Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) determined that the involved member should be charged with four criminal offences: dangerous driving, assault with a weapon, unlawful confinement and pointing a firearm.
Cst. Seregelyi, who has been a member of the RCMP for 2 1/2 years, has been released on his own recognizance with conditions. He is currently suspended with pay. Once the criminal charges have been resolved, his duty status will be reviewed.
All media inquiries about this incident should be directed to ASIRT at 780-641-9099.
The Alberta RCMP will not be commenting further on this incident.
