The civilian director of Manitoba’s Independent Investigation Unit has concluded that no charges will be authorized against Winnipeg officers for an arrest where a suspect’s elbow was broken.
The IIU says that officers responded to a call about an assault on a female on May 27, and that police reported the suspect was uncooperative and force was used to arrest him.
The agency’s investigators interviewed the 23-year-old man and four civilian witnesses, and also reviewed information such as radio transmissions and expert opinions from a forensic physician.
The man still faces charges from the incident.
