Hockey Player Arrested For Attacking Referee During Game


An Erie Community College hockey player attacked a referee during a national title game and it resulted in an arrest.

Freshman Brandon Day can be seen storming the penalty box and charging at the referee in the final seconds of the National Junior College Athletic Association championship game. Even though it was the end of the game, he was charged with a ten-minute match penalty for abusing an official and was later arrested.

ECC president Jack Quinn issued a statement on the incident.

"The act of one player is in no way indicative of our mission as an educational institution, and does not personify the cordiality and dedication to service instilled in our student body."

The investigation is still ongoing.
