Police were called to a scuffle at a Toronto-area hotel in what Skate Canada calls an unruly celebration involving figure skaters.
Peel police Sgt. Pete Brandwood says officers were called to the Delta Meadowvale hotel in Mississauga around 5 a.m. Sunday when eight Skate Canada members got into a fight on the second floor.
He says police sent those involved back to their rooms, adding that one man had his cheek cut in the melee but that the injury was minor and didn't require medical attention.
Skate Canada says there was a celebration at the hotel that "got out of hand," and that skaters didn't hush up when hotel staff confronted them over a noise complaint.
Brandwood says the incident wasn't criminal in nature and that police were there mainly to help the manager on duty quell the unrest.
Skaters from across the country had been competing at the Canadian figure skating championships, a week-long event held in Mississauga that wrapped up Sunday.
