Sgt. Miriam Dickson.

A Mountie from Mission is facing charges in connection with an off-duty fight outside a Pitt Meadows bar.

Sgt. Miriam Orynthia Jean Dickson, 43, faces two counts of assaulting a peace officer and one count each of resisting arrest and causing a disturbance.

Charges against the former media spokesperson for the Mission RCMP were sworn on Tuesday in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court.

The charges stem from an “altercation” that took place outside Rooster’s Country Cabaret shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday, June 3.

Ridge Meadows RCMP allege Dickson got in an argument with a man after leaving the bar.

Two uniformed RCMP officers, who were already patrolling the parking lot, intervened and tried to diffuse the situation, but were allegedly assaulted by her.

She was arrested and taken to cells.

“Obviously I am disappointed with this alleged behaviour,” said Insp. Richard Konarksi, the officer in charge of the Mission detachment.

RCMP are conducting an internal investigation and Dickson is currently assigned to administrative duties.

She is scheduled to make a first appearance in court on Aug. 20.

In August 2009, Dickson (nee Booth) won the women’s bodybuilding competition at the World Police and Fire Games. She was then a sergeant with the RCMP’s “E” Division in Vancouver. Prior to that, she worked with Ridge Meadows RCMP in community policing.
