CPS rejects IPCC case against officer in Taser discharge

Staffs - PFOA

The Crown Prosecution Service has decided not to pursue charges against an officer following a Taser discharge despite a referral from the Independent Police Complaints Commission.


Adrian McDonald died following his arrest at a flat in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, in 2014.
The IPCC had asked the CPS to consider charges against a trio of officers based on its investigation but prosecutors found “insufficient” evidence for a “realistic prosecution”.


After a Taser was discharged during the incident the 34-year-old, originally from Huddersfield, was arrested and taken into a police van before becoming unresponsive and subsequently dying at the scene.


The findings of the IPCC investigation will not be published until conclusion of the inquest in November.
