An off-duty Red Deer RCMP officer who threw a woman against a wall in a booze-fueled brawl outside a city bar last year was convicted of assault in Red Deer provincial court on Friday.
Judge Vaughn Myers granted Darren Gordon Ryan, 30, a conditional discharge as long as he completes nine months of probation and 100 hours of community service. Ryan must also report to a probation officer, take anger management and alcohol abuse programs if directed, and refrain from drinking alcohol for nine months. If he completes his probation successfully, he would not have a criminal record.
