Court hears the case of convicted rioter accused of breaching conditions

She’d been drinking and she was dressed to go out.  That’s how the police officer who arrested Camille Cacnio is describing the convicted Stanley Cup rioter who violated her curfew in January.

Vancouver Police Constable Barry Selver says he pulled Cacnio over during a routine road check in Gastown and smelled alcohol on her breath after she told him she hadn’t been drinking.

When he ran her name through a police computer, he discovered the woman driving in the opposite direction of her home was 20 minutes past the curfew set when she was spared jail time in September.

He also noticed she was dressed up.

Selver says Cacnio did not show any signs of being in medical distress and when he asked her why she lied about drinking, she told him she didn’t think the two margaritas she’d had earlier that evening were still in her system.

Earlier today, her lawyer tried to have the trial closed to media claiming his client suffers from depression.
