Winnipeg police officer won’t be charged in collision, arrest that injured man

Manitoba’s police watchdog — the Independent Investigation Unit of Manitoba (IIU) — says an officer who was involved in a vehicle collision that ended with a man sustaining injuries will not be charged.

The IIU says on June 7, 2023, they were notified by the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) that a man had been injured during a vehicle collision and arrest.

The report from WPS said around 4 a.m., officers observed a stolen pickup truck being driven in the area of Inkster Boulevard and St. Cross Street, before it crossed an intersection at high speeds and hit a police vehicle.

The driver attempted to flee and one officer reportedly briefly used force, and a taser was used.

The driver was then taken into custody. After arriving at the District 3 station, officers noticed the man had visible injuries and called an ambulance.

Through an investigation, the IIU determined that the officers’ use of force was reasonable, and decided no charges will be laid.

The man who was taken into custody remains before the court on charges from the incident.
