Commission dismisses complaint against Saskatoon cops
Rules no one dropped teen off outside town
The province's public complaints commission says Saskatoon Police did not drop a teen offside town in freezing weather this past winter.
The commission investigated the complaint from 19-year-old Drayton Bull alleging that police took him to an isolated part near the city on the night of January 21, in minus-30 weather, and dropped him off.
"Reports and records were obtained from the SPS that confirmed no police vehicles were outside the city limits of Saskatoon during the time or date of the alleged incident," Justice officials said in a news release.
"Mr. Bull acknowledged that he only recalled parts of the incident, having blacked out for periods of time and that although he encountered an individual in black pants, he did not specifically identify the individual as being a police officer."
The commission ruled that there's no reasonable basis to support the allegation.
