A former Vancouver TV host accused of assaulting a police officer in a masked lawsuit has been warned by a judge about getting a lawyer – after firing several.
Marrett Alexander Green is charged with harming the Vancouver Police Department (VPD) Const. Cain in an assault, assaulted the officer while engaged in their duty, and attempted to take a weapon from an officer.
The charges relate to a fight on January 26, 2021 between a man who allegedly refused to wear a mask as he entered the Vancouver Law Courts downtown. Decisions of the court at the time the mask was ordered.
Police were called when the man refused to comply.
In the incident that followed, an officer received a broken leg.
“This was pointless. This was ruthless. It was unnecessary,” said a spokeswoman for the VPD, Constance Tania Visintin.
Green appeared before Vancouver Provincial Court Judge Jennifer Oulton on June 3.
He told her he had fired his lawyer, prompting the Crown’s prosecutors to tell him that Oulton Green has not retained lawyers.
“He’s just jumping from lawyer to lawyer,” the Crown said.
“You should definitely get a lawyer,” Oulton said.
Green was a CKVU TV news anchor from 1994 to 1999.
