No Charges Against B.C. Police In 3 Separate Incidents: Crown

VANCOUVER - B.C.'s Criminal Justice Branch has announced that no charges will be laid in three separate incidents involving police in Chilliwack, Prince George and Vancouver.

The decision comes after the head of the Independent Investigations Office forwarded reports to the branch indicating the officers involved last summer may have committed an offence.

But in each of the three cases, the branch has concluded there isn't a substantial likelihood that the officers would be convicted.

In the Chilliwack case, a man suffered serious jaw injuries and was jolted by a Taser three times during an arrest after police responded to a man-with-a-knife call.

In the Prince George incident, police chased a driver and passenger on an ATV that crashed into the police cruiser, seriously hurting the passenger.

Vancouver police won't be charged after chasing a man through a steel fence with a police vehicle, sending him flying six metres and resulting in significant leg injuries.
