Man who hurled racial slurs in Abbotsford turns himself in to police

Karry Vernon Corbett taken into custody on Friday

The man who was filmed hurling racial slurs in Abbotsford last month has now turned himself in to police.

Police say that Karry Vernon Corbett, 47, showed up at the Abbotsford courthouse today (Friday) and was arrested without incident.

The Abbotsford Police Department announced on Monday that Corbett was facing four charges – two counts of assault and one count each of uttering threats and causing a disturbance.

Police had been unable to locate him and had issued a warrant for his arrest.

The incident that led to the charges took place on Friday, Oct. 21, when lawyer Ravi Duhra saw an attendant handing a ticket to a double-parked pickup truck in a parking lot in the 33600 block of South Fraser Way.

Duhra heard words exchanged and a threat and went to take a picture of the truck’s licence plate. It was then that the truck’s passenger turned his ire on Duhra, who began filming the interaction.

The man spewed numerous racial slurs at Duhra, whose video of the incident was later widely circulated across social media and drew international attention.

Corbett’s charges relate to his interactions with Duhra and with the parking attendant before Duhra began filming.
