Charges laid at Pee-Wee hockey game in Lethbridge

September 9, 2019

Lethbridge Police have charged one male and laid additional charges against a second male after an altercation at a hockey tournament in Lethbridge

Hockey fans are known for being quite passionate, but one incident at the ATB Centre on Sunday went sour. 

Lethbridge police have charged a 55 year old man with assault, after a video surfaced of a man attacking a referee. Robert Farrell Creighton of Standoff was released from custody and will appear in court on October 9th.   Additional charges are pending against a 36 year old male who took part in the incident, but left the building and has not been located by police yet. A statement has been released by High Performance hockey, which hosted the tournament.  

"Actions like this have no place in our game. The Quest for the Cup tournament is an opportunity for players to enjoy the game of hockey with their friends. For that reason, we are especially disappointed to see an act like this occur." 

An update will be issued once the second male has been located and the charges sworn.
