Tribune Express - - ACTUALITES • NEWS - – Gregg Chamberlain

The Special In­ves­ti­ga­tions Unit (SIU) has clo­sed the file on a case concer­ning a 56-year-old man who suf­fe­red se­rious in­ju­ries while lod­ged in cells at the Haw­kes­bur y OPP de­tach­ment. SIU Di­rec­tor To­ny Lo­par­co sta­ted in the file brief that the in­ves­ti­ga­tion de­ter­mi­ned and confir­med the in­ju­ries were self-in­flic­ted and not the re­sult of any al­ter­ca­tion with po­lice. The SIU is an arm­slength agen­cy that in­ves­ti­gates cases in­vol­ving po­lice where death or se­rious in­ju­ries have oc­cur­red. Its file brief on the Haw­kes­bur y case states that po­lice ar­res­ted the man Aug. 30 2017 as a re­sult of a do­mes­tic dis­tur­bance call. The man was pla­ced in a cell and while there he first struck his head against a cell wall and then ran head-first against the cell door bars, fal­ling over ba­ck­wards as a re­sult and stri­king his head on the concrete floor. The man was ta­ken to hos­pi­tal for me­di­cal treat­ment.
