Mini Hobart Hoedown

Matthew Langford stands before Judge O'Grady

Hobart Lane is kind of like Phillips Street in that it will probably never live down its (well deserved) party reputation, even though there has not been a "Hobart Hoedown" in many years.

For you nubies the Hoedown preceded the Blarney Blowout, but of the same basic idea:  day drinking until you get completely out of control, and when police arrive throw dangerous objects at them.

Amherst police encountered two rowdy party goers very early Sunday morning trying to force their way into #29 Hobart Lane.  When they refused to comply with instructions to leave -- and physically resisted police -- officers had no choice but to arrest Kyle Bisceglia and Matthew Langford, both age 20.

Matthew Langford (6 feet 2 inches tall, weighing 200 pounds) was charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest and Assault and Battery on a police officer.

 Kyle Bisceglia arraigned before Judge O'Grady

Kyle Bisceglia was charged with Resisting Arrest and Disorderly Conduct.

Both are hiring their own attorney and they will return to Eastern Hampshire District Court in mid-December.

What a couple of total scumbags. Sadly, they'll get a slap on the wrist and little more. These so-called punishments are not very punishing.

I think their names appearing on Larry's blog is far more of a punishment than 50 hours community service and a $400 fine. Any subsequent job searches will reveal this very blog post - one of the upsides of OITROA being so popular. Here's some fuel for that fire (aka Google indexer): Kyle Bisceglia, Matthew Langford Kyle Bisceglia, Matthew Langford Kyle Bisceglia, Matthew Langford

I'm not sure screaming "you're a fucking faggot" is just a silly little "college indiscretion" that a serious employer would overlook.

WHo said they were UMA students?

Safe bet they were visiting a UMass student (or two, or three or 100).
