A hockey rioter described by the Crown as a “significant instigator” in last June’s Stanley Cup melee was given a 90-day sentence to be served on weekends.

Lincoln Kennedy Williams, 22, was given the jail term as well as 15 months’ probation and ordered to do 100 hours of community service on Friday, reports CTV News.

The judge took into consideration that Kennedy Williams turned himself in the day after the riot. He has also written an apology letter. The young man, who was originally facing three charges, pleaded guilty to participating in a riot.

Video evidence played during the trial showed Kennedy Williams smashing a truck outside the Canada Post building on Georgia Street with a steel bar, helping to flip it and removing its gas cap, which caused gas to pour out, reported 24 Hours.

The man’s defence lawyer told the court his client was drunk that night and his behaviour was influenced by childhood abuse and work stress, reported The Province.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story stated Lincoln Kennedy Williams was given a 90-day conditional sentence. In fact, he was sentenced to 90 days in jail to be served on weekends.
