No charges warranted against officer who caused man to lose hearing in ear: Ontario’s police watchdog

TORONTO – Ontario’s police watchdog says criminal charges weren’t warranted against an officer whose actions led a man to lose hearing in his left ear.

The Special Investigations Unit says the incident happened while officers with Halton regional police were executing a search warrant at a home in Milton, Ont., in January 2017.

The agency says the officer under investigation deployed a “distractionary device” beside the homeowner, causing the man’s ear drum to rupture.
