The Special Investigations Unit has terminated an investigation into an interaction that occurred last month between Windsor police officers and a 41-year-old man riding a bicycle.

On the afternoon of July 8th, 2019, officers pulled over a cyclist in relation to how he was riding his bicycle. When they asked for his identification, he failed to identify himself and he pedaled away. The man fell from his bicycle and was taken into custody.

When the man complained of a sore right wrist, he was taken to hospital for treatment.

“As it does not appear the man suffered a “serious injury” within the terms of the SIU’s statutory mandate, the Unit is without jurisdiction to proceed and the investigation is hereby discontinued,” said Joseph Martino, Interim Director of the Special Investigations Unit.
