After-event partying by some mountain bike participants at Mount Washington over the weekend resulted in property damage and an assault with a fire extinguisher.
Comox Valley RCMP received numerous calls for assistance with a group of approximately 30 people partying and ultimately causing much destruction to one of the units at 1280 Alpine Rd. on Mount Washington.
A property manager attempted to disperse the unruly group prior to
police attendance, the RCMP said Monday in a news release. He was assaulted as one person set off a fire extinguisher in his face.
Four males whom police say were competitors in the Bearclaw Invitational Slopestyle mountain bike competition at the Mount Washington Alpine Resort were arrested and face possible criminal charges.
