The police officer who initially restrained a man whose death sparked violent street protests will not be prosecuted following an investigation for gross misconduct by the police watchdog.
Rashan Charles, 20, died on July 22 last year having earlier been apprehended by police and at least one member of the public after running into a shop in Dalston, east London.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) had been considering a common assault charge against the officer after a referral from the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC), previously known as the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC). A CPS spokeswoman said: "Following the death of Rashan Charles in July 2017, the Independent Office for Police Conduct referred a file of evidence in relation to one Metropolitan Police officer for a possible charge of common assault. "The CPS has considered the matter and decided the evidential test for a prosecution for common assault is not met. We will therefore not be taking any further action regarding this offence."
