DAWSON CREEK, B.C. – Kevin Johnston was given a pre-trial conference date during his Dawson Creek court appearance on Wednesday.

The conference will take place in Prince George on June 28th.

Johnston was arrested and charged with assault after punching the manager of No Frills on March 25th.

A video posted on his social media platforms showed RCMP arresting Johnston after he was seen yelling, ” I am making a citizen’s arrest” at the manager.

In a separate video, Johnston was seen throwing a punch at the manager. This came after the worker hit Johnston’s hand away while he tried to shove his phone in the manager’s face.

Dawson Creek RCMP says the manager followed a group that entered the store without masks to the parking lot to collect license plates for a police report.

Johnston was in the city to speak at a Freedom Rally.
