A Toronto police officer is facing charges stemming from a car chase in March.

The Special Investigations Unit announced Friday that Constable Ricardo Gomez is looking at charges of assault causing bodily harm and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.

The officer will appear in court Sept. 14.


The SIU says on March 4 the officer was investigating a vehicle on Danforth Avenue. The officer pursued the vehicle, which became involved in a collision on Main Street north of Danforth Avenue.

"As this matter is now before the courts, and in consideration of the fair trial interests of the charged officer and the community, the SIU will make no further comment pertaining to this investigation," a press release said.
