On Thursday July 18, 2013, York Regional Police (YRP) contacted the SIU with information about the injuries reportedly suffered by the male in a collision with a cruiser operated by an on-duty GPS officer on August 12, 2012.  The complainant had recently brought the injuries to the attention of the YRP.

The SIU has assigned an investigator to probe the circumstances of this incident.

The SIU is an arm’s length agency that investigates reports involving police where there has been death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault. Under the Police Services Act, the Director of the SIU must

SIU Closes Investigation into Toronto Incident

Case Number: 13-TCI-154

Appeals Form

Mississauga (18 July, 2013) — Based on the Special Investigations Unit’s (SIU) preliminary enquiries into the injuries of a 33-year-old man in Toronto. SIU Director Ian Scott has terminated the investigation.

On Wednesday, July 3, 2013, at 8:17 a.m., a member of the media forwarded an e-mail to the SIU with a link to a You-Tube video showing Mr. Craig Thompson being forcibly arrested by Toronto Police Service (TPS) officers.  The narrative included in the video link indicated that Mr. Thompson was hospitalized for a week after the incident and had difficulty walking and difficulty seeing from his right eye.

On July 4, 2013, Mr. Thompson was interviewed by SIU investigators.  He signed medical releases allowing the SIU to obtain those records. On July 10, 2013, SIU investigators obtained his medical records.  The files indicated that Mr. Thompson’s injuries did not fit the SIU’s definition of ‘serious injury’ necessary to attract the SIU’s jurisdiction, and the director terminated the investigation. However, Toronto Police may conduct its own investigation if it chooses.
