July 1, 2010
A man accused of impersonating a police officer has been released on $500 bail.
Charlie Veitch, 29, lives in England but was in Toronto for the G20 summit.* He’s been described as an absurdist comedian – but police aren’t laughing.
Veitch spoke to reporters when he was released on Wednesday.
“Of my six days in Toronto, I’ve spend 48 hours in custody,” he said.

Veitch will next appear in court on August 23.
