EDMONTON - An Alberta Mountie faces five charges including aggravated assault after a motorist was injured in a shooting.

A government agency that investigates police says a constable fired his handgun on Sept. 23, 2011, after pulling over a man near the community of Boyle north of Edmonton.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says their investigation focused on Const. Jason Clace of the Boyle RCMP detachment.

Clace has also been charged with reckless discharge of a firearm, discharging a firearm with intent to wound, maim or disfigure, use of a firearm while committing an indictable offence and careless use of a firearm.

He is to appear in court on the charges in Boyle Dec. 11.
