OTTAWA - The son of a former Ottawa deputy police chief is one of the U of Ottawa students allegedly involved in sending vicious sexual online messages to the student association president.

Alex Larochelle is one of the four university student execs who resigned over the weekend following allegations he took part in the incident involving Anne-Marie Roy.

His father is Gilles Larochelle, now the police chief in Kingston.

In a statement provided to local media Tuesday Gilles Larochelle and his wife Tessa Youngson-Larochelle, an Ottawa police inspector, said their son made a terrible mistake.
