Vernon and North Okanagan
Mountie brawl breaks out at social event
Feb 12, 2013 / 4:43 pm
RCMP say two Mounties got into a dustup during a social event for a police hockey tournament in Vernon.
Spokesman Gord Molendyk says it happened Friday at a hotel where nine teams from police detachments around BC had been staying for the event.
He wouldn't say what caused the altercation, who was involved and if there were any injuries.
Molendyk says it's a very competitive tournament but fighting is not allowed.
The tournament is named in memory of Vernon RCMP Cst. Jean Minguy, who drowned in a boating accident in Okanagan Lake while on duty in the summer of 2005. (CKIZ)
