Carson Briere, the hockey player from Mercyhurst University and son of interim Flyers GM Daniel Briere, has been charged in connection with last week’s incident in which he shoved a wheelchair belonging to a disabled woman down the stairs at a Pennsylvania bar.
Briere is facing charges of criminal mischief, criminal conspiracy to commit mischief, and disorderly conduct in Eric County, Pennsylvania.
The wheelchair was unoccupied when Briere pushed it down the stairs.
I usually don’t post anything serious on my twitter but something happened Saturday night and just can’t stomach the thought of this kid getting away with it. In the video below is a @MercyhurstU student and is currently on the @HurstMensHockey team. Carson Briere. pic.twitter.com/kWWlEYEc7V

“I am deeply sorry for my behavior on Saturday,” Carson Briere said in a statement. “There is no excuse for my actions, and I will do whatever I can to make up for this serious lack of judgment.”
Daniel Briere also posted a statement calling his son’s actions “inexcusable.”
“I was shocked to see Carson’s actions in the video that was shared on social media yesterday. They are inexcusable and run completely counter to our family’s values of treating people with respect. Carson is very sorry and accepts full responsibility for his behavior.”
Fellow Mercyhurst player Peter Carrozzi also faces the same charges stemming from the incident.
