Calgary man charged after ‘FHRITP’ obscenity yelled at reporter

The man, who has not been named, faces a charge of stunting under the Traffic Safety Act


 

CALGARY – Calgary police have charged a man with hurling vulgarities at a female journalist covering the bad behaviour of hockey fans.

The man, who has not been named, faces a charge of stunting under the Traffic Safety Act.

The non-criminal offence carries a $402 fine.

CBC reporter Meghan Grant says she was reporting three weeks ago along the Red Mile, a strip of bars and restaurants popular with Calgary Flames fans, when a man shouted out from a passing truck.

Her camera recorded the truck’s licence plate and officers tracked down the alleged heckler.

Grant says the man shouted out the same sexually explicit phrase that has become a trend targeting female reporters.

A man who recently shouted obscenities at a reporter covering a Toronto soccer game was fired by his employer for violating its code of conduct.
