Family charged in alleged Canobie Lake Park melee released on bail
E. Allen Perry, 45, of Lyndon, Vt., was released from the Rockingham County jail on $1,000 cash bail and barred from the Salem-based amusement park while the case is pending.
His sons, Joshua Perry, 23, and Brian Perry, 18, have also been freed from the county jail on bail, according to jail records.
E. Allen Perry demanded a refund for his admission ticket and refused to leave the park after being told to put a knife he was carrying back in his car, according to prosecutors. A park staffer had given Perry a business card to call about a refund at a later time. Joshua Perry was also told to either leave or be arrested after he swore at police officers dealing with his father, police said. E. Allen Perry allegedly confronted officers about arresting his son, but defense lawyers contend he was only trying to speak with police.
Two other family members are facing misdemeanor charges for the alleged melee: Damian Perry, 18, of Lyndonville, Vt., and Ashley Perry, 20, of Sutton, Vt., were each charged with disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing.
