D-III basketball head stomp of the week
Marquise Caudill, Daniel Webster’s leading scorer tried to punch and stomp a hole in one of the opposing players heads during the game vs. Southern Vermont. Because of the ridiculous move Vermont won in a forfeit and 25 cops were called to the scene.
Twenty-two-year-old Marquise Caudill allegedly attacked a player from the opposing team. Officer Hannigan tried to stop the assault and make an arrest when Caudill threatened him. Another woman, 43-year-old Elizabeth Morris, intervened, positioning herself between Caudill and Officer Hannigan, preventing him from making the arrest.
At the same time, another player on the basketball team, 23-year-old Antwaun Boyd, was reportedly inciting the crowd, encouraging them to keep Officer Hannigan surrounded. The officer called for backup and 25 Nashua Police officers responded to help control the mob.
The fight was basically the last straw for the program having the school being bought by ITT and a eventually being shut down. A statement from the school came out soon after saying this is the last game the program will play.
