Police watchdog clears Clarence-Rockland OPP officers who broke man’s nose during arrest

The Special Investigations Unit (SIU) has cleared two OPP officers in Clarence-Rockland after a man’s nose was broken during an altercation outside the eastern Ontario police station last November.

The SIU, a civil agency tasked with probing incidents of serious assault involving police, invoked its mandate in November 2020 after a 26-year-old man was injured while in OPP custody.

Provincial police said that the man in question, called the complainant in the SIU report, was arrested for allegedly driving impaired and taken to the Clarence-Rockland police detachment around 3 a.m. on Nov. 1.
