Police have arrested a man after he allegedly tried to stop police from arresting a man at an LCBO in North York’s Sheridan Mall on Friday.
Police arrested 41 year old Andrew Burger this afternoon and he’s expected to be charged with obstructing police.
Burger was one of many people who gathered around an officer on Friday who was trying to make an arrest.
25 year old Marquel Johnson, of no fixed address, was arrested Friday and charged with assaulting police and committing an assault while resisting arrest.
The crowd yelled at the officer to let him go as he struggled to make the arrest.
