WINTHROP (CBS) – The father accused of pointing a laser into the eyes of a high school hockey goalie will face criminal charges.
According to Winthrop Police, 42-year-old Joseph Cordes will be charged with disturbing the peace.
Last Wednesday, Cordes, the father of a Winthrop girls hockey player, was caught pointing the laser at the Medway-Ashland goalie. Winthrop Assistant Superintendent Lisa Howard went into the stands and ordered him out of the arena.
“I wish I could undo it,” Cordes tells WBZ-TV. “I feel like a complete jerk. It was very stupid, completely immature for a 42-year-old man to be doing that.”
Winthrop went on to win the game 3-1.
Cordes was barred from all events involving Winthrop High School.
“My daughter, the humiliation I put her through is sickening to tell you the truth,” says Cordes.
