(THUNDER BAY, ON) – MOB MAYHEM AT VICTORIAVILLE.
Thunder Bay Police working hard on the scene of a brawl involving numerous people this afternoon.
No word yet on any charges.
The Director of Communications at TBPS may have exceeded the allowable levels for soy in a human body and gone home with a sore tummy. Don’t expect him to notify the public.
A man was fighting with numerous Thunder Bay Police Service officers who were attempting to make an arrest. The indigenous male became violent with officers and was quickly subdued, being handcuffed and placed on the ground. The suspect then spit in an officers face. The spit contained blood.
Officers started to shout at the man after this disgusting behaviour and that’s when a mob approached and started yelling at the police. Violence started to erupt amongst the crowd and more officers responded to the scene. Witnesses to the scene say that the situation was very close to a riot breaking out but did calm down, despite violence breaking out in the crowd.
Back at Hotel Balmoral (police station), during his room booking, the man is alleged to have spit in another officer’s face.
UPDATE: Kevin Douglas SAKANEE, 35, of Thunder Bay, is charged with Assaulting Peace Officer x 2, Resist Peace Officer, Uttering Threats – Death or Bodily Harm.
UPDATE: Two short videos have emerged from the situation which show what happened afterwards when things calmed down.
