Around 6 p.m., on Aug. 30, 2022, a road-rage incident occurred between two drivers in the northeast community of Skyview. A verbal altercation occurred, which escalated with one driver striking the other. 911 was called and police responded to the scene.

The incident was reported to the Alberta Director of Law Enforcement. The matter was left with CPS for further investigation.

Following further investigation, on Tuesday, Dec. 20, 2022, Lisa BISCHKE, 42, was charged with assault and driving without due care and attention.

Const. BISCHKE has been with the Calgary Police Service for seven years. She remains on administrative duties pending further review.
