VERNON - Two Mounties got into a dust-up during a social event for a police hockey tournament, the RCMP says.

Spokesman Gord Molendyk says it happened Friday at a hotel where nine teams from police detachments around B.C. had been staying for the event.

He wouldn't say what caused the altercation, who was involved and if there were any injuries.

It's a very competitive tournament but fighting is not allowed, Molendyk says.

The tournament is named in memory of Vernon RCMP Const. Jean Minguy, who drowned in a boating accident in Okanagan Lake while on duty in the summer of 2005.
