Constables Brian Hanney, 47, a 23-year veteran, and Hollis Buggie, 34, an eight-year member, were found not guilty of assault causing bodily harm following a trial in provincial court Tuesday. But angry complainant Earl Crowe said later he intends to appeal the decision by Judge Gordon Rennie. "They can't get away with what they did to me and they certainly are not going to go out on the street to do it to somebody else," he said. Crowe told court the two officers pulled him over about noon last Dec. 8 for making an illegal left turn. He said he ran from the officers because he was driving while his licence was suspended and did not want to be charged. Crowe said the officers chased him and caught up to him where he was hiding on a condominium balcony. He said Hanney kicked him in the buttocks then struck him across the face and held him while Buggie grabbed his arm and twisted it until he broke it at the elbow. "I said 'You're breaking it, you're breaking it . . . it's broken,' " Crowe said. "I didn't holler, I didn't struggle, I didn't fight and I didn't swear at them." Seven charges were laid against Crowe following the incident and he later pleaded guilty to two driving offences and refusing to provide a breath sample. A doctor who treated Crowe said the fractured elbow could have been caused by having his arm twisted but could also have resulted from a fall. Both constables denied they assaulted Crowe but said he fell while they were chasing him. A condominium resident who saw the officers make the arrest said she didn't see either of them assault Crowe. Seventeen-year-old Michelle Pickens also said she saw Crowe stumble when the officers chased him on to her balcony. Rennie said he accepted the officers' version of events where it differed from Crowe's. Murder remains mystery By Mario Toneguzzi (Herald writer) Police in Florida have so far come up empty in their investigation into the brutal murder of a Calgary woman a month ago. Sheriff Tom Tramel, of the Lake City, Fla., police department, said Tuesday that no charges have been laid in Darlene Mes-ser's murder. And they have no suspects and no murder weapon, he said. "We have nothing at this time. We're still pursuing all angles." Messer, 36, a former Forest Lawn high school student, was murdered during a bizarre hostage-taking incident in Lake City, 80 kilometres west of Jacksonville. She was abducted from her job at the Suwannee Swifty convenience store Sept. 18 while working the graveyard shift. Less than ; rr.w I " e"V. f -al- "... X. ....... PEN PALS: Darlene, Charles $100 was taken from the till during the robbery. Evidence showed Messer probably put up a struggle in the store. Her badly beaten body was discovered by a railway employee two days later in a swampy creek about 80 kilometres west of Lake City. A few days later, police in Gainesville, Fla., picked up a 31-year-old male suspect, in his car, in connection with two convenience store robberies in the area. "Obviously we were interested in the subject because there might possibly have been a connection," said Tramel. But he added: "So far we don't have any evidence to connect the car or the suspect (to the Messer murder)." Tramel said "right now, we don't have any suspects" in Mes-ser's murder. Messer moved to Florida two years ago to marry her pen pal, Charles, a prison inmate. Tramel said further investigation into the murder has determined the cause of death was "blunt trauma to the face and head," but no weapon had been discovered. Witness ordered detained A material witness in the seven-year-old slaying of a city cabby is being held in custody until a preliminary inquiry scheduled to begin at the end of this month is completed. Judge William Troughton ordered the man detained following a hearing in provincial court Friday. Crown prosecutor Harold Hag-glund told court he had reason to believe Gurchavan Singh, a material witness in the case, would not attend court to give evidence even if he was subpoenaed. A little-used section of the Criminal Code allows the court to detain a witness who might otherwise fail to appear to testify. Singh is a witness in the murder of 33-year-old Gurmeet Wa-raich, whose beaten body was found stuffed in the trunk of his taxi in August 1982. Four men have been charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit first-degree murder in connection with the killing. Eric Gilles Major, 52; Gerald Raymond Boudreault, 51; James Alan Bell, 41 and Pal Singh Bhul-lar, 43 face a preliminary inquiry into the matter Oct. 30.
