A Met officer is to be charged with assault occasioning grievous bodily harm following an incident in 2020 where a man suffered life-changing injuries after being tasered.

The officer, a police constable who is currently not being named but is attached to the Territorial Support Group, will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on April 19.

He is being charged via postal requisition following an investigation by the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

The charge relates to an incident on 4 May, 2020, in Burgoyne Road, Harringay, where a 25-year-old man fell over a wall after being tasered by the officer.

He has since been named as Jordan Walker-Brown by the IOPC.

The IOPC's investigation began in May 2020 following a referral from the force and concluded in February last year.

Ch Supt Simon Crick, who is responsible for policing in Enfield and Haringey, said: “As the local commander for the area of London where this happened, I deeply regret any injury caused to a member of our community through an interaction with police officers.
