Bonnie Muckuck of Mishkeegogamang First Nation had her shoulder broken in 2013 altercation with OPP

A woman from Mishkeegogamang First Nation is seeking $2 million in damages from Ontario after a 2013 altercation with two Ontario Provincial Police officers in Pickle Lake, Ont., left her with a broken shoulder and ribs.

Bonnie Muckuck, 55, is also suing the provincial police for $2 million. The civil actions were filed separately in Ontario Superior Court, but will proceed together, according to Muckuck’s lawyer.

Muckuck was found not guilty last June of assaulting police during the 2013 altercation, in which she was injured. She was also found not guilty of assault on her partner, a complaint that led to her contact with police.
