The college freshman hockey player accused of attacking a referee during a game at the SUNY Broome Community College Ice Center February 28 is now also being charged with assault.

19 year old Brandon Day of Cheektowaga, who attends Erie Community College, had been charged with harassment, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief for jumping out of the penalty box and hitting the official, sending him falling to the ice.

The attack was caught on video and shows the referee falling to the ice, unconscious.  He suffered injuries to his shoulder and hip.

Day was ejected from the Ice Hockey Championship tournament and allegedly caused thousands of dollars in damage to a locker room at the ice center.

ECC suspended Day and apologized for the incident.

Erie had been playing Dakota College in the tournament.
