VANCOUVER - A Penticton man has been found guilty of an assault that left a Vancouver police officer with a broken leg.

Paul Eddison, born 1974, appeared in Vancouver Provincial Court on June 28 to  face multiple charges of assault and uttering threats stemming from an incident with police in January 2018. A judge found Eddison guilty of assaulting a peace officer and uttering threats.

In January 2018, Vancouver police said Eddison, who is from Penticton, approached two officers in the city's entertainment district and physically confronted them. During the altercation, one officer's leg was broken so badly that the bone pierced the skin.

Eddison is set to return to the Vancouver court for sentencing on Sept. 16.
