The Crown has dropped the charges against one of the officers in a shooting involving two Niagara police officers last year.
Det.-Sgt Shane Donovan was facing charges of aggravated assault and assault after Const. Nathan Parker was shot at a rural crossroads in Pelham, Ont., last year.
But those charges were dropped in a St. Catharines, Ont., court on Friday. There was no reasonable prospect of conviction, and time will show that any aggression from Donovan was in self-defence, said Joanne Mulcahy, Donovan's lawyer.
