A Hamilton man is levelling serious allegations against Peel Regional Police after he and his family were pulled over last Saturday night.
Ian Hanniford telling The Hamilton Spectator he was pulled over on Kennedy Road and police asked him to take a breathalyzer test.
The man says the officer seemed to think they were coming from a customer appreciation party being held at a Jamaican restaurant nearby.
When he got out of his vehcile, Hanniford says police started questioning his 13 year old son.
Hanniford objected, tried to close the door and says that is when Peel Police arrested him.
Hanniford says his wrist was broken and blood he had drawn immediately following the incident shows he had not been drinking.
His pregnant wife was told she’d have to make her own way home because the car was being towed.
While it’s not clear if a formal complaint has been lodged with Peel Police over the incident, Hanniford says he has contacted a lawyer.
