Three men have been charged after a violent mob attacked police, set fire to a cop car and tried to storm a hospital early Friday in LaLoche, Sask.

The melee started after two men tried to speed by a police truck on their ATVs. One of them crashed into a ditch and the other fled the scene.

While officers were tending to the 29-year-old man, who’d passed out, beer cans and bottles started to rain down on them from several people who’d been partying at two nearby homes, police said.

People surrounded the police truck, swearing and blaming the cops for the injuries to the unconscious man. When the ambulance arrived, the EMS personnel were also pelted with bottles, cans and other debris, police said.

The ATV driver was taken to hospital, where police and hospital staff had to barricade the doors to keep out the crowd of what they estimated to be 50-70 people that had shown up and tried to get in. Police believe the mob was trying to get at them and « forcibly remove » them, the release said.

« Members resorted to using pepper spray on several persons in the crowd to stop the entry, » police said. Read more…
