Posted on Monday, February 12, 2018 11:58 AM

The Special Investigations Unit isn't laying charges against an OPP officer in Sioux Lookout over his arrest of a man. 

The SIU says they didn't find reasonable grounds to lay criminal charges in relation to the arrest of a 27-year-old man in Sioux Lookout in November of 2016. 

Officers arrested the man for breaching his court order and transported him to the police station. 

The SIU is called in when police are involved in an incident that involves death, serious injury or allegations of sexual assault.
