A warrant has been issued for an American man who skipped a court date on charges in connection to Vancouver’s Stanley Cup riot.

Police are looking for 21-year-old Jensen Peter White of Seattle, Wash., who’s accused of participating in a riot and mischief for allegedly helping to flip over a parked car.

White was attending university in B.C. at the time of the riot and failed to appear in court to face the charges.

Vancouver Police Insp. Laurence Rankin, the team commander of the Integrated Riot Investigation Team, says it’s futile for Mr. White to hide and he should do the right thing and make arrangements to turn himself in to investigators.

Rioters smashed windows, looted stores, overturned cars and set fires on June 15 last year after the Vancouver Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final game to the Boston Bruins.

Charges have been approved against more than 120 people and police have said they expect to lay hundreds of charges against as many as 300 people involved in the riot.
