UPDATE: Man charged after allegedly making vulgar comment on live TV
Toronto Police have now slapped a mischief charge on the man, seen on video, uttering a vulgar phrase, following a Raptors game.
Tristin Warkentin was earlier identified by the Toronto Sun, and he told the paper, the “influence of alcohol” was behind his “huge mistake.
When NEWSTALK 1010 reached out to speak with him, he directed our producer to his lawyer, and then hung up.
Toronto Police charged him on Thursday with one count of mishief, interfere with lawful operation of property. That's for interupting the live broadcast, rather than the alleged threat against the wife of NBA star, Steph Curry.
Following the Raptors loss on Sunday night, he was being interviewed on CP24, and yelled, "I just wanted to let everyone know: Ayesha Curry, we're going to f*** her right in the p****."
Ayesha Curry is the wife of Golden State Star Steph Curry.
NEWSTALK 1010's Legal analyst Ed Prutschi says this is the first time in Toronto that someone has been charged in a case like this, but he admits the 28-year-old will likely get off with a "minor resolution."
