This is Attleboro Police Chief Kyle Heagney.
Yesterday he was at New England Sports Village in Attleboro where his son was playing hockey for Norton High School against Dighton-Rehoboth/Seekonk. It was your typical hockey game, filled with out of control fans and alleged bad refereeing. The physical play of the game carried into the stands where two Utes with long hair and Timberlands were told to leave the facility. However, these two Utes elected not to do as they were told, prompting a female party who was with them to push one of them away. He then attempted to confront the refs on the ice when Chief Heagney intervened in plain clothes and began pushing both Utes towards the exit. Watch:
A lot of people with no experience in crowd control or law enforcement have a lot of opinions they’re expressing on this brief video.
How dare he identify himself as an Attleboro law enforcement official! And the kid was totally walking away too. It’s not like there’s video of him being held back by a chick as he attempts to get onto the ice and confront a ref or player.
Seems like a nice young man. I feel really bad for him.
“If I was a parent I’d be pressing charges.”
And therein lies the problem. These two punks have never been told “no,” and they think rules don’t apply to them. Mommy and Daddy make excuses for them and blame other adults who actually hold them responsible for their behavior.
Oh please. He got pushed backwards.
He didn’t even loose his pompom hat. He’ll be fine.
No Monica, he’s holding the badge to show the out of control punks that he IS the law, and they’re violating it in his city.
Lots of people seem to believe cops can’t put their hands on kids.
How do you think juveniles get arrested there, Steven? Magical handcuff dust?
Just to review, it began when someone from the facility was telling the Pompom Poons they had to leave.
Pompom Poon #1 didn’t feel like doing that and started causing a scene and pointing at some lady he had an issue with. The girl he was with told him to leave.
The Chief arrived as things are escalating.
Pompom Poon #1 tried to walk onto the ice to confront someone.
This prompted the Chief to start pushing him out of there as he immediately identifies himself as a cop.
No punches were thrown, no one got hurt, and another officer assisted in getting him out of there. Then Pompom Poon #2 started with the “don’t f***ing touch me” routine as he resisted getting escorted away too.
Then at the last moment the Chief and a security guard briefly scuffle as he identified himself as a cop.
In the second video Pompom Poon #1 is seen resisting arrest as he’s placed in handcuffs and the mob yells “he dindu nuffin” and “take your hands off him you f***ing pig.”
There is literally no controversy here. Two douchebag kids acted disorderly and created a dangerous environment which was intensifying. One of them tried to get onto to the ice while yelling threatening things at a ref. They were told to leave and had ample opportunity to do so. When they wouldn’t leave voluntarily they were forced out by the head law enforcement official for City of Attleboro. No guns, no tasers, no punches. Just some hurt feelings and bruised egos.
