Howell Parents Hockey Attack

August 28, 2019


I’M ON THE 7th FLOOR AND HAD WAVES UP TO MY DECK. STORM WON’T REACH NEW JERSEY UNTIL WEDNESDAY MORNING. IT’S NOT AT ALL UNUSUAL TO SEE A FIGHT BREAK OUT AT A HOCKEY GAME. PARENTS ARE ACCUSED OF ATTACKING A REF. EMILY SMITH HAS THE STORY NEW AT 6:00. AS A HOCK YE COACH AND DAD, PARTICIPANTS CAN GET TOO INVOLVED IN TEENAGER’S SPORTS. I HAD TO APOLOGIZE FOR MY LAST TIME OUT. IT’S AN EMOTIONAL GAME, HIGH STAKES. Reporter: THE POLICE CONFIRMED THE MOST RECENT MAY LEE HAPPENED AT ICE WORLD. A REFEREE CALLED A MOM A CURSE WORD AND TOLD HER TO EXIT THE GAME. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE GAME, TWO PARTICIPANTS FOLLOWED THE REF INTO THIS CHANGING ROOM AND THIS IS WHERE THE FIGHT TOOK PLACE. Reporter: IT WAS THE HOCKEY MOM’S HUSBAND AND FRIEND WHO TOOK ON THE REFEREE. THEY STARTED ARGUING AND FIGHTING. THEY WERE JUST HITTING EACH OTHER, PULLING THEIR SHIRTS OVER EACH OTHER’S HEADS. Reporter: STUDENTS SAY IT WAS AN INTENSE GAME THAT ENDED IN A TIE WITH A STORE OF 1-1. ROB– HAD TO BE TRANSPORTED TO THE HOSPITAL FOR A SPRAINED NECK. HE TWEETED AM HOME RESTING. CONNOR HAN SOUTHBOUND SAYS HE KNOWS THE MOTHER. I THINK THE REF WAS HAVING A BAD DAY OR WAS FED UP OR I DON’T KNOW. LIKE ANY OTHER HUSBAND WOULD DO. HE RETALIATED. THAT’S NOT SOMETHING APPROPRIATE FOR HOCKEY. WE KNOW ONE OF THE TWO REFEREES IS THE PRESIDENT OF THE NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY CHAPTER OF THE NATIONAL ICE HOCKEY OFFICIALS ASSOCIATION. BOTH REFEREES WENT TO THE HOSPITAL FOR MINOR OPERATIONS. IF SURVEILLANCE VIDEO WAS TAKEN, WHOEVER INITIATED COULD BE CHARGED WITH ALL THE AND TYPED. WE CALLED THE SCHOOL DISTRICT BUT THEY WOULDN’T COMMENT SINCE STUDENTS WERE NOT

    What should have happened is both teams should have had the remainder of their schedules forfeited to preclude further parental misconduct.

    Strong coaches will forfeit a game when parents behave like this.
