Hockey Fan Fight Results In Assault Charges

Charges have been laid against four people following a fight at a minor hockey game last month. The altercation happened on January 17th at the Darlington Sports Centre in Clarington. Police say a 59-year old grandfather and a 48-year old Clarington woman were struck with a mini-stick while a woman punched another woman several times. Four individuals were charged with assault; police are not releasing their names to protect the identities of the players who are 13 and 14-years old. The Clarington Minor Hockey Association released a statement saying it's held meetings with both parents and players, and is working with the Ajax Minor Hockey Association to implement additional safeguards to monitor subsequent games, adding that the playoffs have since continued without incident.
