On Sunday, Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Thomas Carrique released a video on Twitter showing two people smashing their cruiser.

The video was shot from inside the car and shows masked individuals walking towards them, yelling and attacking their vehicle, and shattering glass.

One person uses a lacrosse stick to hit the driver’s side window, while another can be seen throwing an object at the windshield.

Carrique shared the video late Sunday with the following statement: “Protestors falsely blamed #OPP for escalation in #Caledonia. Extremely proud of my officers for their professional and measured response to keep the peace & preserve life while under attack. Arrests continue as members take responsible and sustained enforcement approach @WR_OPP.”

Demonstrations by the Haudenosaunee people against a property development on what they argue is unceded Indigenous land have been going on for months.

These Land Defenders began occupying the land back in July, renaming it 1492 Land Back Lane.

It was unclear at the time of publishing what relationship, if any, the two men shown in the video have with the group.

Following the release of the video, 1492 Land Back Lane put out a tweet late last night appearing to allude to the video, saying "after a desperate attempt to shift the blame to our side after shooting rubber bullets into a group of innocent bystanders. The police put out an out of context video. Forgetting to mention the goading of our people."

"Immediately preceeding this, Haudenosaunee women had asked repeatedly for the OPP to leave the area. Don't disrespect Haudenosaunee women. #AbolishPolice," they also tweeted.

CTV reported that one of the people in the video has since been identified by OPP and will be facing charges. The other person in the video hasn't been identified as of yet.
