Man Breaches Security To Get To Biden
February 17, 2010
The unnamed Vancouver resident, said to be mentally ill, printed off a fake pass and had it laminated.
Using this, he managed to get past security, which was being handled at the gates by Vancouver Olympic Organizing Committee.
Two female mounties stopped him, and when he tried to run they took him into custody.
“They approached him, determined that the accreditation he was carrying was forged or fake, confronted him and escorted him out one or two steps at which point he attempted to run and was taken into custody,” RCMP Assistant Commissioner Bud Mercer explained.
It is not believed that he had any intention of harming Biden, and instead is described as being “infatuated” by the Vice President.
