SIU clears officer after northern Ontario man blinded in eye by Taser prong


The province's police watchdog says there are no reasonable grounds to charge a provincial police officer after a Pikangikum First Nation man was struck near the eye by a prong from a Taser and partially blinded.

Director Tony Loparco says the incident occurred on June 19, 2012, and was reported to the Special Investigations Unit on July 13, 2015, after the man's father notified the OPP that his son had lost sight in one eye.
