The Special Investigations Unit has cleared a Guelph police officer after an incident in December of 2016.
The director of the SIU, Tony Loparco, says there are no reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges after an 18-year-old man sustained serious injuries while he was being arrested.
This had to do with a case involving the man allegedly pulling on vehicle door handles.
At the time the man was charged with theft and assaulting a police officer.
The SIU says the officer used reasonable force, noting the suspect was reaching for something in his right sleeve before getting handcuffed.
