Ontario’s police watchdog charges Durham cop in jail cell death of man who went into medical distress

Ontario’s police watchdog has charged an officer in the death of a man who went into medical distress in an Oshawa, Ont., jail cell.

The Special Investigations Unit says Acting Sgt. David Swaine of the Durham Regional Police has been charged with failing to provide the necessaries of life.

The charge stems from an incident in November 2019, when the 32-year-old man was arrested following a fight.
