Officer charged over language in taxi

6:42 pm on 3 March 2014

A Queenstown policewoman has been charged with using offensive language in a taxi.

Constable Jenny McNee is to appear in the Queenstown District Court on 18 March.

The 43-year-old's lawyer, Nic Soper, said on Monday he is still waiting for full disclosure and that he and his client only found out about the charge on Friday.

Mr Soper says the alleged incident took place on 3 November last year, when Ms McNee was on leave without pay following a knee injury.
