Family members in park fight sent to higher court
The cases of three Vermont family members have been bound over to superior court on charges they assaulted police officers at a Salem amusement park when they were told to leave their knives in the car.
The Perry family tried to enter Canobie Lake Park in Salem on June 16. The police said they became belligerent and when two officers responded, they yelled profanities.
After several warnings, an officer told one man he was under arrest and tried to handcuff him, leading to a fight that injured two officers.
WMUR reported a judge yesterday determined the state had enough evidence to prosecute 23-year-old Joshua Perry of Sutton, Vermont; 18-year-old Brian Perry of Lyndonville, Vermont; and 45-year-old Elmer Perry of Lyndon, Vermont. The charges include felony riot, resisting arrest and others.
