Man suing Toronto police for G-20 beating was carrying ingredients for a Molotov cocktail

TORONTO — Prosecutors and defence lawyers for a Toronto Police officer accused of assaulting a man at the G20 protests three years ago appear to agree the man’s red water bottle is a key to the case.

In a three-page “agreed statement of facts” introduced Monday at the start of Constable Babak Andalib-Goortani’s trial, all the lawyers signed off on a paragraph which reads: “Adam Nobody dropped a red water bottle behind the police line. Police saw him drop it and seized a red water bottle.”

Forensic tests later showed the liquid inside was composed of ethanol, water and a trace of toluene, and was easily ignited.
