Vt. family arrested at Canobie Lake Park after altercation with police over knives
The family was told by park security officers that knives they were carrying on their belts had to be left in their car and could not be taken into the park, police said.
Police warned one family member who they said was yelling profanities to calm down. After several warnings, he was told he was under arrest, police said.
The melee set off a larger police response. Once back-up officers arrived, the mother of the family faked a seizure, police said. She was examined by paramedics and released at the scene.
Joshua Perry, 23, of Sutton, Vt., charged with felony riot, resisting arrest, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He was held this morning on $5,000 cash bail pending his arraignment.
