No reasonable grounds found against Sudbury police officer

The Director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, has found no reasonable grounds to believe a Greater Sudbury Police Service officer committed a criminal offence in connection with a fractured left knee suffered by a 38-year-old man in January.

He says on January 4th, officers were dispatched to a bus terminal on Elm Street in Sudbury after the man reportedly assaulted a transit security officer and a transit user.

Martino says the man was taken into custody, but after complaining of pain, was brought to the hospital where he was diagnosed with a knee injury.

Martino adds he is satisfied that the officer was entitled to apply a measure of force to subdue the man, and tactics used were reasonable in the circumstances.
