Two Mounties are headed to the penalty box for fighting at a hockey tournament over the weekend.
The men were partying in a Vernon hotel on Friday night when they argued and started punching each other.
No one is saying what injuries they had, but an RCMP spokesman said police are investigating the pair.
"Whatever evidence there is at the end, it could go to criminal court or it'll be dealt with internally, depending on the outcome of investigation," Gord Molendyk said Tuesday.
The officers had travelled to Vernon for a nine-team tournament that attracts some of the best players who work as police officers in the province. They gathered for a dinner at the Best Western Vernon Lodge when the fight broke out, Molendyk said.
The annual tournament was inspired by the death of Const. Jean Minguy, a Vernon Mountie who died on duty in a boating mishap in 2005. Police said the men were RCMP members from outside Vernon, but did not disclose their ranks or detachments.
Two teams hailed from Kelowna. The others were from Vernon, Kamloops, Delta, Whistler, North Vancouver, West Fraser Valley and First Nations officers from across B.C.
No on-ice brawls broke out during the games - an infraction that tosses offenders from the four-day tournament. There's no body checking.
The North Vancouver team became champions when they beat Delta in the final.
Police were withholding whether the men are barred from active duty while other officers investigate them.
