Chan was accused of assaulting the police and resisting arrest during the Mong Kok unrest during Lunar New Year in 2016. The verdict of the case was pronounced in 6 October 2016. Chan was sentenced for nine months for assaulting the police and four months for resisting arrest, both sentences to be carried out simultaneously. Chan applied for an appeal and bail in November, but was rejected for his low chance of a successful appeal. His subsequent application to the High Court was granted, and the appeal is scheduled to take place on 8 March, meaning Chan may join his family union before the Lunar New Year.
Chan was released on a $10,000 bail. He is not allowed to leave Hong Kong during his bail, and must report to the police twice a week.
