Toronto cop charged with professional misconduct over pepper-spray incident judge called ‘obvious police brutality’

The Toronto police officer who was captured on video pepper-spraying a man handcuffed in the back seat of a police car has been charged with professional misconduct stemming from the 2016 incident an Ontario judge called “obvious police brutality.”

Const. Matthew Brewer is also facing misconduct charges in a recent unrelated incident, in which he’s alleged to have used “profane, abusive or insulting language” with a senior officer, and yelled “abusive, threatening” things at a woman inside a Whitby gym before throwing her belongings against a wall and kicking over a garbage can on the way out.
