SIU Terminates Investigation into Arrest outside Mississauga Restaurant

Case Number: 17-OCI-334

Mississauga, ON (20 December, 2017) ---
The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Tony Loparco, has terminated an investigation into the arrest last month of a 35-year-old woman by Peel Regional Police (PRP) officers.

At approximately 9:30 p.m. on November 13, 2017, PRP officers responded to a Boston Pizza in Mississauga in relation to patrons who were behaving in a disruptive manner. Outside the restaurant, the 35-year-old woman was arrested and taken to the police station. As a result of complaining of pain, the woman was transported to hospital.
  
Director Loparco said, “The medical evidence establishes the woman did not suffer any injury. Accordingly, this investigation has been terminated.”

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

  • consider whether an officer has committed a criminal offence  in connection with the incident under investigation
  • depending on the evidence, lay a criminal charge against the officer if appropriate or close the file without any charges being laid
  • report the results of any investigations to the Attorney General.
