Hamilton police officer who punched handcuffed man gets disciplined

A Hamilton police officer who was found guilty in April of assaulting a man in custody will forfeit 120 hours as penalty for a related disciplinary charge.

The penalty was submitted jointly Monday by the Hamilton Police Service, prosecuting the disciplinary charge under the Police Services Act, and the officer's union representatives at the Hamilton Police Association.

Const. Kudo Park was found guilty in April of assault after punching a handcuffed man who had spat in his face in 2015.

Park received a suspended sentence in July, which doesn't carry jail time but does leave him with a criminal record.
