Ontario SIU director Joseph Martino found no basis for criminal charges for York Regional Police officer after December firearm discharge resulted in death of 37-year-old Newmarket man.

SIU officials say they have discontinued an investigation into a woman's reported wrist injury during an arrest by Orillia OPP.

On September 14, 2023, the SIU says OPP arrested a 27-year-old woman for public intoxication in the area of 50 Centennial Drive.

"She was taken to the police station, then the hospital, where it was initially thought she was treated for a recent fracture of her right wrist," the SIU stated in a release.

"But, based on a review of her medical records, the woman did not in fact suffer a fracture during her arrest. Rather, it appears she was treated for a years-old fracture of the wrist, which may have been aggravated at the time of her arrest."

Based on this information, Joseph Martino, Director of the Special Investigations Unit, says they were without statutory jurisdiction to investigate the matter further and the file has been closed.
