Father found guilty of rioting for summer brawl at Canobie Lake Park


BRENTWOOD - One of the people involved in a riot at Canobie Lake Park last summer has been found guilty of that charge.

Alan Perry and his two sons, Joshua, 23, and Brian, 18, were indicted by a grand jury back in September.

Another son who is 18 and a daughter who is 20 also were arrested that day. Those two pleaded guilty to their charges and were fined.

Police said Perry was carrying a knive attached to his belt that day.

When security workers told them they couldn't have those knives, police said the family became "extremely belligerent."

Police said it was at that point that one officer tried to handcuff one of them, and that's when the brawl broke out.

Four of the family members jumped in. The fight included everyone, police say, except the mother.

The family, as the video shows, were punching and kicking officers, jumping on their backs, and reaching for weapons.

As the fight got even more heated, more police were called in for backup.

The jury also found Alan Perry guilty of criminal trespass, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Perry was found not guilty on two counts of assault on an officer.

He is scheduled to be sentenced in April.
