Video: Rioter swings bag at cop, punches firefighter

Intoxicated Vancouver rioter taunts public safety officials


By PoliceOne Staff

VANCOUVER – A drunk, disorderly Vancouver man is seen involved in altercations with firefighters and police officers in video posted online from a hockey riot.

The video was filmed following the Wednesday Stanley Cup final in which the Vancouver Canucks lost to the Boston Bruins, which sparked riots in the Canadian city.

Dustin Anderson can be seen angrily taunting and swinging his shopping bag at a police officer in riot gear before punching a firefighter in the face.

Anderson told CBC News he's surprised he hasn't been arrested and charged yet, but that he would surrender to authorities Tuesday.
