Stamford man charged in college basketball brawl

February 22, 2017 GMT

A city man is among two college students arrested over the weekend after a fight broke out during a basketball game at Daniel Webster College in New Hampshire.

Nashua police said Daniel Webster guard Marquise Caudill, of Windsor, Conn., assaulted a player from the opposing team Saturday and threatened a security officer who tried to stop him, according to local news reports.

Authorities said teammate Antwaun Boyd, of Stamford, appeared to be inciting the already hostile crowd, CBS News reported. The 23-year-old was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Daniel Webster, which forfeited the game, was playing Southern Vermont.

It took about 25 officers to restore order after the brawl, according to CBS News.

The college condemned the incident in a statement posted Sunday on its website.

“The behavior at last night’s game does not reflect the values and standards of sportsmanship we expect from student-athletes,” the statement reads. “The incident is still under investigation by the Nashua Police Department and we are cooperating with authorities as they complete their investigation.”
