CHARLOTTETOWN — A teenaged hockey player and his father are facing charges following an alleged assault on a referee during a game in Prince Edward Island.
The RCMP say the official received minor injuries in the incident, which allegedly occurred during a Midget double-A finals minor hockey game on Sunday at the rink in Pownal, southeast of Charlottetown.
An 18-year-old Charlottetown man and his 41-year-old father, a resident of Morell, each face one count of assault.
Police say both men have been released from custody and are scheduled to appear in Charlottetown provincial court on April 26.
