25 officers needed to stop brawl at college basketball game in NH
NASHUA - Dozens of police officers responded to Daniel Webster College to stop a brawl that broke out during a basketball game on Saturday.
Three people are facing charges - including Daniel Webster College's leading scorer - after the player stomped on an opponent who was on the ground. Marquise Caudill, 22 of Massachusetts, was charged with second-degree assault, simple assault, criminal threatening, and disorderly conduct.
Elizabeth Morris, 43 of Massachusetts, obstruction of government administration, and Antwaun Boyd, 23 of Connecticut, was charged with disorderly conduct.
Police said Caudill stomped the downed opposing player, and a police officer who was working security tried to make an arrest. They said Caudill threatened the officer and Morris stood between them, preventing him from being able to make the arrest.
Boyd, another player from Daniel Webster, appeared to be inciting an already hostile crowd that surrounded the officer, who had to call for backup. Approximately 25 Nashua police officers were sent to the college in order to control the crowd.
Caudill is being held on $50,000 cash only bail pending his arraignment.
The Nashua Police Department requests anyone with information about this incident to contact the Nashua Police Department at (603) 594-3500 or the Crime Line at (603) 589-1665.
