House arrest for man in attack on NY fans
December 14, 2012
By The Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A man accused of beating two New York Rangers fans in a brawl after the NHL Winter Classic in Philadelphia has been sentenced to house arrest.
A Philadelphia judge on Friday sentenced 33-year-old Dennis Veteri of Glassboro, N.J., to a range of slightly under one year to nearly two years of house arrest followed by five years' probation. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to aggravated and simple assault and conspiracy.
The Philadelphia Daily News (http://bit.ly/W711Xx) reports that prosecutors asked for prison time, but Veteri's lawyer said his client is ``a good man who had a bad day.''
The fight occurred outside a cheesesteak stand after the Rangers beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in the Jan. 2 game. One victim, an off-duty police officer, was beaten unconscious and his eye-socket broken.
