A former Western Hockey League referee is facing a charge of sexual assault.

Bradley Jason Reminek made a first appearance in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court last week on one count of sexual assault against a male adult.

He was arrested in August after police received a complaint about an alleged offence that took place in July.

Crown approved a charge against Reminek in mid-September.

“The Ridge Meadows Serious Crimes Section has conducted an investigation into a sexual assault that is alleged to have been committed by Mr. Reminek,” said Sgt. Jennifer Hyland, of the Ridge Meadows RCMP sex crimes unit.

“This investigation involved a single victim complaint of sexual assault. Police are not currently investigating any other sexual assault allegations regarding Reminek.  However, anyone with information regarding this incident can contact the Ridge Meadows RCMP.”

Well-known throughout the local hockey community, Reminek is a former owner of the Ridge Meadows Flames junior B hockey team and, up until last season, did online podcasts of home games.

He is also a former referee who has his Level 5, one of the highest levels in Canada, and has refereed games in the WHL and at international levels.

He also appeared as a referee in the Canadian movie The Rhino Brothers.
