SIU Clears Peel Police Officer in Mississauga Taser Case
A Peel police officer has been cleared by Ontario's Special Investigations Unit after a suicidal man was injured in Mississauga.
"The medical evidence indicates the man did not sustain a serious injury,” said SIU director Tony Loparco.
“Accordingly, I have terminated the investigation into this incident."
The incident took place on Aug. 5, 2018.
That's when officers responded to a call at a home in the Burnhamthorpe Rd. W. and Mavis Rd. area in relation to a report of a suicidal man.
Upon arrival, officers became involved in an interaction with the man, and one officer deployed his conducted energy weapon, or Taser.
The man was handcuffed and paramedics transported him to hospital for treatment.
He was released from hospital two days later.
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.
