Calgary Police officers have been cleared of wrong-doing in an excessive force complaint from over two years ago.
The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team says a 61-year-old man raised his voice at staff at a northwest Royal Bank on February 19th, 2014, and was asked to leave.
He did so, but outside the doors, he got into a heated confrontation with his wife.
A bank employee went out to intervene, and the man went back inside, continuing to yell.
Officers were called, and when they approached, he walked up to them, leading to an altercation and an aggressive arrest, where officers could be heard telling him to stop resisting.
As it turned out, the man suffered two fractured ribs, leading to an official complaint a year later.
ASIRT says “the officers were lawfully placed and the force used was reasonable in the circumstances,” adding no charges are appropriate.
