LONDON, ONT. - Police have named the suspects arrested in connection with a St. Patrick’s Day riot here.
So far, 15 people have been charged with 19 offences. Six of them are Fanshawe College students.
The names of the alleged perpetrators responsible for $100,000 in
sundry costs to city taxpayers have been the source of much anticipation
in both casual talk and on social media sites.
A Facebook page titled Fleming Riots St. Pat’s Day 2012 was
constructed for the sole purpose of outing those who took part in
1,000-person march on police that ended only after a news truck was
overturned and torched, fences were torn down and streets littered with
hundreds of broken bottles.
Police, too, publicized dedicated phone and e-mail sources for the public to use to help them track down the worst of the worst.
Fanshawe College President Howard Rundle recently said that eight
students have been suspended pending further investigation. It’s
possible one or more may get expelled.
The names and charges are as follows:
Jacob Biggelar, 19, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly
Jordan DeRose, 18, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly
Peter Donohoe, 19, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly
Michael King, 19, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly
Blaine Mills, 21, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly and two counts of assault police with a weapon
Kory Puklicz, 19, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly
Brian Garton, 25, is charged with: obstruction of police
Stephania Smieja-Henry, 20, is charged with: obstruction of police and resisting arrest
Michael Moore, 20, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly and mischief under $5,000
Ryan McMahon, 24, is charged with: being a member of an unlawful assembly mischief under $5,000
Police also said two 15-year-olds were charged with offences
including being members of an unlawful assembly and assault of police
with a weapon, but cannot be named because of their age.
