VANCOUVER - The first person to go on trial in the Stanley Cup riot in Vancouver has been found guilty on three charges.

Spencer Kirkwood had pleaded not guilty to participating in a riot, mischief and breaking a court order, saying he was too drunk to remember smashing a window with a street barricade — an action that was caught on video.

But Provincial Court Judge Conni Bagnall says Kirkwood's intentions were clear and he wasn't too drunk to understand he was doing something wrong.

She convicted him of the two riot-related charges, as well as one count of breaching a court order to stay away from alcohol.

Kirkwood will be sentenced later.

More than 100 people have already pleaded guilty without trial and been sentenced for their part in the riot after the Vancouver Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final to the Boston Bruins in June of 2011.
