The Serious Incident Response Team isn’t laying charges against two RCMP Officers after an arrest of a Lower Sackville youth.
It says allegations the officers unjustifiably beat her and used a Conducted Energy Weapon multiple times aren’t supported by medical records, stun gun records, paramedics evidence or the officers involved.
SiRT says RCMP attended a first call and was sent away and at the second call it says the youth overdosed on an unknown drug, became violent and officers tried to control her by using the CEW.
But, she removed a prong which eliminated the effectiveness.
SiRT says she was eventually restrained.
It says after investigating, there are no grounds for laying a criminal charge against either officer.
