The Oak Bay Police Department has released that an officer was taunted and scratched up while breaking up a beach party of teenagers on Saturday night.
The police officer responded to reports of a noisy party taking place in McNeil Bay. He attended the incident alone, according to Oak Bay PD, as other members were responding to a separate call at Willows Beach.
The party consisted of a small group of teenagers who were “smoking pot and consuming liquor,” Oak Bay PD said.
The lone officer attending told the teens the party was over and, while police said that most of them left, a few started taunting instead.
Oak Bay Police said the teens “started yelling “Fu** the Blue” and continued to yell and swear despite requests by our member to stop.”
Police point to one of the party-goers, in particular, who was “very agitated.”
The male, estimated to be 230 pounds, continued to yell things like “Fu** You and Fu** the Blue. When the officer went to act, the teenager avoided arrest, which led to the injury of the member.

In a tweet sent out on Sunday by Oak Bay Police, it indicates the officer walked away with some bruises and scratches but is ultimately fine.
The tweet also suggests that this rhetoric is seen more commonly these days.
The teenager was apprehended, issued a ticket and turned over to his mother.
