Vancouver police have charged two men and a youth in a swarming that injured three officers, hospitalizing one, at English Bay last summer.
Anthony King, 26, Chas Verrier, 21, and the minor have been charged with assaulting a police officer and obstructing a police officer for their alleged role in the high-profile brawl in June.
“Thanks to tips from the public, we were able to identify these alleged agitators and arrest them,” said Const. Tania Visintin in a Thursday press release.
“We presented the evidence to B.C. Prosecution Service, which this week approved criminal charges.”
Around 7 p.m. on June 18, beach patrol officers were called to investigate a large fight and possible assault involving 10 people, said the release.
They arrested and handcuffed one man as they tried to diffuse the situation.
That man caused a disturbance and refused to leave, leading about a dozen others to surround the officers in an “extremely volatile” situation.
In the end, three officers were injured, according to Vancouver police.
