Three years of investigation and judicial reviews into the death of Tanisha Anderson ended Friday when a Cuyahoga County grand jury declined to bring criminal charges against Cleveland police officers who handcuffed her and let her lie on the ground shortly before she died.

The grand jury on Friday issued no-bills on all criminal charges that could have been filed against Cleveland police officers Scott Aldridge, 49, and Bryan Myers, 33.

Myers was in his probationary period as a new police officer and was still in training at the time of the incident, according to the Attorney General’s investigative report.

Both officers have been on restricted duty since Anderson’s death.
