Two members of the Toronto police force have been convicted of assault.
The officers, Edward Ing and John Cruz, were found guilty of assaulting Richard Moore — a disabled man — outside his home on the night of April 24, 2009.
Moore, 58, became verbally abusive when the police tried to arrest him on a drunk and disorderly charge.
He suffered fractured ribs and a cut on his head while being taken into custody.
The court ruled that the officers had no reason to take Moore into custody — and the judge noted that blood tests showed no trace of alcohol in his system.
Ing and Cruz will be sentenced at a later date.
