Bruce Shipley and Alfred Wong have been charged with breach of trust, fabrication of evidence, and two counts of public mischief, Transit Police said Wednesday in a statement.
The charges are related to an incident at the Granville SkyTrain station on Feb. 9, 2012 when the two constables approached a man sitting on the Seymour Street staircase.
They had overheard the man might be in distress, approached him, then allegedly assaulted and pepper-sprayed him as he tried to walk away.
Vancouver Police conducted the investigation.
The assault charges were laid against the two officers last August. At that time, Wong had been a Transit Police officer for four years, Shipley five years.
Both remain on administrative duties.
