A British man made a court appearance in Toronto on Wednesday, after being charged with impersonating a police officer during last weekend's G20 summit.
Police announced Tuesday evening they had charged Charlie Veitch, 29. He was taken into custody while boarding a plane for London.
Veitch is a satirist whose videos can be seen on YouTube, and he was in Toronto poking fun at the security preparations for the G20.
