UMass lacrosse player arrested

Thursday, February 7, 2008

Amherst police arrested University of Massachusetts lacrosse player Christian Haggerty, 19, of 308 North Pleasant St, at 4:15 p.m. today in connection with an off-campus fight that left three hospitalized last Friday.

One of eight lacrosse players suspended after violating team rules in an unspecified off-campus incident last week, Haggarty was charged with one count of nighttime breaking and entering to commit a felony and two counts of assault and battery.

According to police his arrest came after a week-long investigation of the incident that sent three college-aged men to Cooley Dickinson Hospital in Northampton with non-life threatening injuries. A dozen men allegedly entered an apartment at 304 North Pleasant and assaulted “a number of people” with lacrosse sticks and bottles, according to police reports.

The investigation is ongoing and more arrests may be made, police said.

Haggerty will be arraigned on Feb. 8 at the Eastern Hampshire District Court.
