Carson Briere Will Face the Courts After Wheelchair Incident

After an incident involving a wheelchair and a staircase, Carson Briere, a former NCAA Division I hockey player and the son of Philadelphia Flyers general manager Danny, found himself in a difficult situation.

He was kicked from the hockey team at his university as a result of this terrible incident, which revealed some characteristics of his character. However, it appears that this is just the beginning of his issues.

Mark Scheig from The Hockey Writers has reported that Briere is set to face the courts on charges of criminal mischief, conspiracy, and disorderly conduct.

“Briere, former Mercyhurst hockey player, has a district court appearance in Erie on Monday morning to respond to charges of criminal mischief, conspiracy, and disorderly conduct. The hearing is set for 11am.”

It’s unclear at this time if the accusations are tied to the wheelchair incident or to an other set of misdeeds.

Regardless of the origin of these charges, Carson Briere will undoubtedly face significant repercussions for his conduct. As many would argue, such consequences are entirely justified.

Briere needs to improve a lot as a person if he ever wants his hockey career to continue.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
