The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has cleared Barrie Police after a man suffered a serious injury during a June arrest.
Barrie Police officers were called to a Courtney Crescent home shortly before 4 p.m on June 29. Officers were met by paramedics who were in the process of treating the injury of a man who reportedly jumped from a balcony at the back of the home. He was found on the ground complaining of a pain in his foot.
He was placed under arrest and taken to Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre where doctors determined he fractured a bone in his foot. Following an investigation by the SIU, it was determined that injury was not the result of police action.
