MONTREAL — The police officer made famous after a video of her pepper-spraying protesters during the 2012 student strike was uploaded to YouTube will not be charged for the incident, the Crown prosecutor's office announced Wednesday.
However, Crown spokesman Rene Verret told QMI Agency that police and his office are still investigating another incident involving Stefanie Trudeau that could lead to charges.
Officer Trudeau, known un-affectionately on social media sites as "Officer 728" was recorded while she generously used pepper-spray on student protesters during a street demonstration in May 2012.
The Crown prosecutor said "no criminal violation" was committed.
However, Trudeau was also caught on tape conducting an aggressive arrest last October. The video of the arrest was also uploaded to YouTube, making Trudeau more infamous and leading police to once again investigate.
Trudeau reportedly threatened a fellow officer in February, leading police to strip her of her gun and a judge to force her to sign an order promising to keep the peace.
