A 22-year-old Vancouver man charged for participating in the Stanley Cup riot is now facing another charge after allegedly breaching his release conditions.

Transit Police spokeswoman Anne Drennan says Jeffrey Chatman was arrested Monday night after officers apparently saw him drinking a beer on a street corner near where he is accused of looting a drug store during the riot in June 2011.

Drennan says Chatman had signed an undertaking saying he would not go within several blocks of the area after he was charged with break and enter and participating in a riot.

Chatman has now been charged with breach of an undertaking, was released on the same conditions as before and is not allowed in any London Drugs stores.

His next court appearance is scheduled for July 9.

Over the last two years, 102 people have received sentences ranging from discharges to more than a year in jail in connection with the riot after the Vancouver Canucks lost the Stanley Cup to the Boston Bruins.
