Nottawasaga OPP say a Taser was pulled during an incident between fellow officers.

On Oct. 14, more than two officers were involved in an "interaction" resulting in a Taser being pulled, but police wouldn't confirm if the weapon was used on officers.

"We're just calling it an interaction right now," said Dave Ross of OPP corporate communications. "I can't say if it was used or not used. I can just say it was unholstered during the interaction."

No injuries were reported, but Ross did say police are taking the incident seriously.

"Our professional standards bureau is conducting an internal investigation into a conducted energy weapon (Taser) being unholstered by one of our members during an interaction with other members in the detachment."

The incident happened while the officers involved were at the Nottawasaga detachment, but names have not yet been released.

"Because they're police service matters, we can't speak to officer's name," Ross said.
