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.

Ontario's Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has cleared Barrie Police in the case of a man who suffered facial injuries while being arrested for public intoxication.

Officers were called to a Mapleview Drive business last August after reports of a man threatening staff and customers.

As he was being escorted to a police cruiser, the SIU says the man kicked the officer in the knee.

The man was forced to the ground, striking his face on the pavement, resulting in facial fractures.

The SIU has determined there were no reasonable grounds to believe the man’s injuries were attributable to any unlawful conduct on the officer's part.
