The trial for a six-year Calgary Police Service member, charged with assault causing bodily harm and assault with a weapon after allegedly using his Taser to zap a 73-year-old man after a traffic stop, has been adjourned.

Daryn Swanson, 30, who was charged last January, was scheduled to face a trial starting on Monday but it was rescheduled to begin on April 28 and last for three days.

Lawyer Willie deWit, who appeared on Swanson's behalf, said the new date was required to book an out-of-Calgary judge to hear the case.
