The Ontario Special Investigations Unit found no “reasonable grounds” for two Kingston Police officers to commit a crime by arresting a man on June 7, 2021.
Officers responded to a 911 call about a man banging on the windows of a Princess Street building on the night of June 7.

The man resisted arrest when officers tried to detain him under the Mental Health Act and place him on the police patrol.
The arrested man was later diagnosed with a broken arm when he was taken to hospital.
SIU Director Joseph Martino found there was “insufficient evidence” to establish that the officers had used force unjustifiably during the arrest.
The SIU is an independent government agency that investigates police conduct at any time of death, serious injury, the discharge of a weapon at a person, or sexual assault.
