The Calgary Police Service (CPS) said it will not be laying any charges in an alleged incident of assault and threats at a City of Calgary public meeting Feb. 23.

CPS was asked by the City of Calgary to investigate after reports that a public meeting on the Southwest Transitway got out of hand.

In a press release Thursday, police said that they interviewed a number of witnesses and determined there is not enough evidence to warrant charges.

They concluded that they will not be releasing any further details as they do not deem this to be a criminal incident.

Mayor Naheed Nenshi announced Feb. 25 that the city had cancelled all future public meetings on the project.
