Remember the two Toronto police officers who got so stoned after eating some cannabis edibles (allegedly) that they called for back-up and ended up in the hospital?
They’re back in the news as Const. Vittorio Dominelli and Const. Jamie Young were arrested and charged with obstruction of justice and breach of trust on Tuesday over the alleged Jan. 27th incident following a professional standards investigation. If the officers are found guilty of either of these charges, they could face jail time.
Toronto police said the officers “attempted to obstruct, pervert, or defeat the course of justice, by destroying or converting to their own use, evidence” and that’s because they weren’t only getting high on duty- the edibles the officers allegedly consumed were from a dispensary that was raided by police, in which the accused officers participated in, a few days prior!
According to Toronto Police Service spokesperson Meaghan Gray, “Both officers’ status at the service will be reconsidered and they could face Police Service Act charges at an internal tribunal.”
