Security breach at Opening Ceremonies
A 48-year-old British Columbia resident breached security and got within 12 rows of Vice President Biden as the U.S. leader watched Friday's Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canadian security officials said Wednesday.
The unarmed man was stopped by two Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and he was arrested when he tried to flee while being escorted away from a VIP section in B.C. Place, said Olivier Lapointe, a spokesman for the RCMP-led Integrated Security Unit.
