Vermont family charged after NH amusement park riot

Posted: Updated:
SALEM, N.H. -

Police say five members of a Vermont family assaulted police officers during a melee that erupted when security guards at a New Hampshire amusement park told them to leave their knives in the car.

Salem police say the fracas started about 1:30 p.m. Monday when the Perry family tried to enter Canobie Lake Park. Two officers responded to the disturbance and the family became irate, yelling profanities. When an officer told one man he was under arrest, a fight broke out as people jumped on the backs of the officers, punched, kicked and grabbed for their weapons. Two officers were injured. Numerous officers then responded to the melee. Police say when the additional officers arrived, the mother of the family faked a seizure. She was examined and released on scene.

Five members of the Perry family from Lyndonville and Sutton were arrested in connection with the incident, ranging in age from 18 to 45. The charges range from felony riot and assault to disorderly conduct.
