It was a good time...

Brawl mars Regis dance

By Laura Crimaldi / News Staff Writer
Sunday, November 2, 2003

WESTON -- A Regis College Halloween dance turned ugly early yesterday morning after a dispute at the student union touched off a parking lot melee that left one man stabbed in the thigh and six people under arrest.

Numerous fights erupted in a parking lot near Angela Hall just before 1 a.m. after a dispute between two groups shut down a dance sponsored by the campus multi-cultural group AHANA, according to police and college officials.

"It was a sight to behold. You'd be in the parking lot and have one fight under control when the next one would break out," said Weston Police Sgt. Daniel Maguire. "Have you ever gone to Fenway Park and seen the wave? Well, that's what it looked like."

It took 30 officers from campus police, Weston, Waltham, Lincoln, Sudbury, Newton, Wayland, Wellesley and state police in Framingham and Weston to contain the 300-plus crowd, Maguire said.

None of the people involved in the melee is a student at Regis College nor the Art Institute, a Boston-based school that houses students on the Weston campus.

"They screen (visitors) as they are coming in," said Marjorie Arons-Barron, a Regis College spokeswoman. "They had far more people than were expected. There were so many people that came in there were some outsiders that slipped by without checking in."

An unidentified suspect stabbed Samuel Aime, 19, of 655 Massachusetts Ave., Boston, in the right thigh during the mayhem, Maguire said. Knives and broken glass were recovered from the scene, but police do not know what was used to assault Aime.

Aime received six stitches at Newton-Wellesley Hospital before being booked at the Weston Police Department for trespassing and disorderly conduct charges, Maguire said.

Also charged with trespassing and disorderly conducted were Benson Charles, 19, of 3943 Washington St., Apt. 3, Roslindale; Andason Ducasse, 22, of 4 Meacham St., Apt. 7B, Somerville; Calvin Hodge, 20, of 16 West Seldon St., Boston; Jermaine Taylor, 20, of 25 Fairview Road, Apt. 25, Framingham; and Luis Deleon, 20, of 265 Hollis St., Framingham, Maguire said.

They will be arraigned tomorrow morning in Waltham District Court.

The early-morning arrest was the second in a 24-hour period for Hodge, who was arrested in Southborough and charged with driving with a suspended license at 3:36 p.m. on Friday.

People smashed windshields and threw bottles during the fight, police said.

Witnesses spotted another man being beaten under a large group of people, but the victim was taken away by friends before police determine his identity.

Dr. Mary Jane England, president of Regis College, issued a letter to students yesterday offering support to students who witnessed the fight.

"As you know, we have a zero tolerance policy on violence. In accordance with that, those charged in this incident will be permanently banned from campus," she wrote.

Maguire said the incident was out of character for the quiet women's college campus.

"That was highly unusual," he said.

***Note: More than 20+ folks were cuffed and carted away. Many were later released or summonsed....

You mean to tell me that people carry knives on college campuses??? I thought college campuses were quiet little protected places from the outside world and thats why some colleges are unarmed. Thank goodness for Dr. Mary Jane England president of Regis college who said she "issued a letter to students yesterday offering support to students who witnessed the fight." I'm sure that will make everyone feel better and everyone can get together and hold hands and "talk it out".

Don't these people see a pattern in local campus violence, or do they just want to look the other way and think it won't happen here. RIDICULOUS

Mazz, No one got hurt...or should I say, no Police Officers got hurt. As far as the "subjects" are concerned I can't speak for them. Let's just say we held our ground VERY WELL. Can you say "Batter Up!!"??.

While it was initially scarey, as it was like 300+ of them against 6 of us and it took a few minutes for help to arrive... it was a good experience and fun after reinforcements (25 additional PO's) arrived. Let me tell you, those State Troopers don't mess around, they were in there swinging and spraying!! yahoo!! :D

Thanks to all that assisted!

See what happens when you try to have a good time & the "outsiders" come in and screw it all up!! I bet the "multicultural group" AHANA may be hiring a detail or two or twelve the next stabbing, .........er I mean dance they throw.

Won't Calvin Hodge, 20, of 16 West Seldon St., Boston get his license re-instated so he won't have to go through the awful task of being bonded out yet again? Being a two time loser in 24 hours says something, don't you think??

And thank goodness for Dr. Mary Jane England, president of Regis College, who issued a letter to students offering support to students who witnessed the fight. I bet those sheltered women have never seen such a sight in their lives!! They are the dummies who invited them to begin with.


Seems like quite a shindig they had over there. I only wish I was there to see some of these nitwits get a "wood shampoo".

HousingCop, you definately missed a good one. I think Mr. Hodge will serve some time - he did have a 10 page BOP... quite a few of the charges referred to not respecting PO's if you catch my drift. He got a GOOD restraining as he resembled his "track record"!

However, as the article says, there were more "attendees" than usual - about twice the normal amount (approx. 150), therefore we only had 4 Campus Police Officers on for the event. Usually with a 300+ crowd we would have 8-10 PO's for it. AHANA has 4 or 5 more of these "Bashes" scheduled for the school year, it will be interesting if they actually happen.

Oh yeah, another "multi-cultural" group, AMIGAS (Latina/latino), has a gig planned this Friday... Oh boy! - "Bring it on!!"

RPD931, :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank:

Only a 10 page BOP on 20 year old Mr Hodge? Seems that he's a small fish compared to some of his cohorts who reside on West Seldon St! Nothing like seeing them wearing a turban :BE: in the docket the next AM all hung over huh? It brings a tear to my eye.

I can't wait to buy the Saturday & Sunday papers to see how the AMIGAS dance party turned out. I myself miss the Janet Reno Dance Parties on SNL. Quite a fun time watching Will Ferrel play her boogying on down!!

Thank God for BAPERN huh? Maybe you guys should have turned out the regional squad of Ninja Turtles! #-o D'oh. Did I open up a new thread or an old wound or what!! Good work guys. :t:

kmf, Who called us "Security"??? All the media I read ( I missed the ch. 7 spot) called us Campus POLICE. Event the President for the First time called us Police instead of Safety.

An eye opener for admin.

Hey guys....wake up!!! The same way cops go on websites using alias to get info/evedince on pediphiles, hate groups etc. Cop Haters can go on MASSCOPS to get dirt on us. Not so much "evidence" but quotes that can nail you to the proverbial cross. Comments such as "azz whoopin'", "we beat the shit out of those punks", and "wooden shampoo" can cause you to loose your credability, negate a valide use of force explanation or even you house if you are in the wrong coupled with similar comments.
Also there the title Sergeant was added to one if not two of the profiles of the cops making those comments, guys (or gals) its up to you to make sure your officers are not walking around demonstrating this additude let alone yourselves. I understand your frustration concerning the mentality of the uninformed (read clueless) but things like this belong in the locker room, in the cruiser or some were else that it falls on our ears only. You wouldnt hand an advisary your Glock, so dont fuel them with verbal ( or written) ammo. Oh yeah....by the way if I'm starting to sound like a complete ass, its because I'm trying to help, I've had a soul bearing tyriad blow up in my face a time or two. Good job Regis P.D. and mutual aid agencies.

Take it easy. Joe Mac

mac,

You are absolutely correct. My reference to "we beat the shit out of those punks" is inappropriate and more or less means we didn't take any crap, and nobody was "beaten up". I guess I was stilling coming off a adrenaline high when I typed it. Ideally, "the crowd was contained".

In my arrest reports, I used the term "directed and brought to the ground".

B, you'd be proud... I did it the "Ol' evening shift way" :wink:

Hey Gunny,

I know I'd make a reliable witness but would you melt down like Jack Nickleson in A Few Good Men, "You Can't Handle The Truth" :L:

Would this cheap ass state even send you a plane ticket from Paris Island to here to testify, or would they lend you their MBTA commuter pass?

I can see where people are coming from when they say that the cop haters will post these threads on their websites. I have been to their cop bashing websites as well and have seen first hand the whining puke faced punks who post there. All pissed off that some cop took away their dime bags and broke their skateboards in half as punishment. :punk:

They just post what they want on those cop bashing websites anyways. There is no counterpoint views tolerated on those BB's like there is on here, right Herr Moderator? :lol:
