Toronto Police constable charged with assault

A Toronto Police constable has been charged in connection with an arrest dating back to November 2015.

Ontario's police watchdog does not offer much by way of detail about what is alleged to have happened. The Special Investigations Unit says only that officers arrested a man who was sitting in a cab near Maple Leaf Dr and Black Creek Dr and that the 23-year-old sustained serious injuries. Police had been responding to a 911 call.

The SIU says it wasn't notified about the case until nearly a year after the arrest.

Joseph Dropuljic faces one count of assault. He is due in court September 7.
