An American accused of taking part in the Stanley Cup riot has been arrested by Canadian border gaurds.

Dakota Schlag, 20, was apprehended by border agents Monday after he was flagged for a second examination at the Peace Arch border crossing, a spokeswoman for the Canada Border Services Agency confirmed to the Peach Arch News.

The UBC psychology student was trying to enter Canada when agents discovered he was wanted on a Canada-wide warrant. He faces charges of mischief and participation in a riot. He was arrested and turned over to the RCMP, reports The Vancouver Sun.

Schlag, described by The Ubyssey as an avid skier, was working for an Alaskan heli-skiing tour company over the summer.

Last week, the Vancouver Police Department announced they had tracked down three people in the U.S. suspected of participating in the Stanley Cup riot in June 2011.

Policed warned suspects trying to enter Canada would be immediately arrested at the border. An application for U.S. extradition has been considered but not officially filed, said Vancouver Police Const. Brian Montague.

Two warrants remain for U.S. suspects, Jensen White and Nigel Li, reports News 1130. Both suspects are in their early 20s.
