Al Charest / Postmedia Calgary paramedics will undergo a new two-day critical-incident training course, health officials announced Tuesday, as police charged a man in connection with a confrontation on Deerfoot Trail that injured two paramedics and a police officer. Calgary police said while investigators are still working out what led to the altercation , witnesses have reported seeing a green/grey 2006 Acura MDX swerving into the median a number of times and colliding with vehicles. Several paramedics and firefighters were involved in a struggle with a male occupant of the Acura.  “The man actively assaulted the paramedics, resulting in one receiving head injuries,” police said.  A second paramedic continued to struggle with a man inside the vehicle before several police officers arrived. During the altercation, police say three officers discharged stun guns.  “It is believed the second medic inadvertently touched the wires . . . resulting in a small shock,” police said.  Officers removed the man from the vehicle, and he was restrained and sedated. The paramedic with head injuries was taken to hospital in stable condition. “A CEW (conducted energy weapon) probe was found on the medic, however, it is not yet known if he came into contact with it as a direct result of a CEW deployment, or if it was an indirect contact as a result of his struggle with the suspect,” police said.  “At this time, it is believed that neither paramedic was hit by a direct CEW deployment during the incident. Their contact was indirect, as part of the ongoing struggle.” Kent Douglas Wilson, 52, is charged with assault, assault causing bodily harm, assault against a peace officer and resist arrest in relation to the incident.
