Coach charged

WINNIPEG—Police have charged a PeeWee hockey coach in Manitoba with assault following a fight with a referee earlier this year.
Winnipeg Police Cst. Eric Hofley said today charges also are being considered against two young players.

“The investigation is still continuing and further charges are possible,” he noted.
An on-ice scuffle took place during a Feb. 16 game between teams from the Sagkeeng and Brokenhead Ojibwa First Nations.
A Crown prosecutor determined charges against a coach and two players were warranted, noted police.
