Police officer found guilty over assault

A Crime and Misconduct Commission investigation has resulted in a Queensland police officer being found guilty of assault.

Thirty-six-year-old Constable Michael Anthony O'Sullivan was found guilty of attacking Christopher Ahovelo with his police baton during an incident in Adelaide Street in Brisbane's CBD last year.

Mr Ahovelo had earlier been sprayed with capsicum spray.

Appearing in the Brisbane Magistrates Court, the constable was fined $700 and no conviction was recorded.

A report will be forwarded to the Police Ethical Standards Command, which will consider disciplinary action.
