Provincial watchdog clears Winnipeg police in death of man who died at hospital after arrest

Winnipeg police officers were not responsible for the death of a man who had hit his head in a fall and was experiencing delusions when they arrived to take him to hospital, the provincial police watchdog has decided.

The civilian director of the Independent Investigative Unit (IIU) announced Wednesday that there is no evidence to support a finding that either action or inaction by police officers contributed in any way to the man's death,.

On Sept. 23, 2019, police were responding to a complaint about a naked man yelling loudly and incoherently along the Assiniboine River near Kennedy Street, the IIU said in a final report released on Wednesday.
