Protester skates his way to five days in jail

A pro-skateboarding and environmental activist surrendered himself to sheriff's officers Wednesday afternoon for non-payment of a fine, but not before more than 100 supporters marched, skateboarded and cycled with him to the courthouse.
Lee Breen, 25, was recently found guilty of violating a city bylaw prohibiting skateboarding on city streets. He was fined $100 but declined to pay it.
A provincial court judge gave him until Wednesday to pay the fine, but he chose to do the five days of jail time in default of payment.
Before he did so, he and others organized a rally in front of city hall in protest of the nuisance bylaw and Breen's jail term.
