  • Global News published this video item, entitled “Video shows alleged assault of Black man on TTC bus by Toronto police officer” – below is their description.

    The trial has begun for Det. Christopher Hutchings, a Toronto police officer charged with assault and attempting to obstruct justice in relation to the arrest of a Black man on December 13, 2019, on a TTC bus in Scarborough.

    At the trial, surveillance video was shown which appears to show Hutchings entering the bus and approaching the man, who police had been called to investigate for “disorderly conduct.”

    The video, which is silent, showed Hutchings pushing the man, who was later identified as Chase Richards.

    The plainclothes officer could then be seen grabbing Richards’ neck and holding him in what the Crown called a “chokehold” before throwing Richards to the floor of the bus.

    “I don’t think if I was a young white male, entering the back of the bus, he would have gone through the whole ordeal,” said Richards, who told the court the dispute started when he entered the rear of the bus and the driver believed he had not paid his fare.

    Catherine McDonald reports.
