In a statement Thursday, the director of the Special Investigations Unit, Joseph Martino, said he found reasonable grounds to believe that an OPP officer committed criminal offences in connection with the arrest of a 43-year-old man in the Township of Georgian Bay.
On July 10, officers were called to the Canadian Pacific Railway yard for a reported trespass, breaking and entering investigation.
Officers located the man believed to be involved near a retail area on Front Street.
The SIU said there was an interaction between the officer and the man, which resulted in the man being transported to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with serious injuries following his arrest.
