No Charges to Issue in Relation to Mississauga Arrest

Numéro du dossier: 19-OCI-059

Mississauga, ON (25 octobre 2019) ---
On the night of March 18, 2019, Peel Regional Police (PRP) received a 911 call reporting a theft in progress on Shawson Drive in Mississauga. When officers arrived, the person of interest was inside a van and officers surrounded the vehicle. The officers ordered the man to step out. The man then exited from the rear of the vehicle and ran from the officers. He was caught in short order and brought to the ground, whereupon he was arrested and handcuffed. The man was subsequently taken to hospital where he was diagnosed with a fractured right elbow. The Interim Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has determined there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges against a PRP officer in relation to this case.
