Five members of the same Vermont clan were jailed for assault after attacking cops who told them they couldn’t carry their knives into an amusement park.
E. Allen Perry, 45, of Lyndon, and his kin flipped out at Canobie Lake Park in Salem, N.H., on Monday afternoon after guards at the gate told them to ditch the knives they were carrying on their belts.
Cops were called to cool the family’s heels, but things got worse when the Perry crew started spouting obscenities, authorities said.
One of the cops tried to arrest one of four Perry men, prompting the others to jump him, police said.
The Perrys jumped on the officers’ backs, punched, kicked and reached for their weapons during the melee, authorities said.
Lyndon, if for some reason you didn’t know, is a tiny hamlet in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, where men are men and sheep are nervous. We’ll leave the women alone, even if their siblings won’t.
