Two men arrested at New London-Plainfield football game

Plainfield – Two local men were charged with breach of peace and are banned from attending Plainfield High School events after they were involved in a disturbance Friday night following the New London-Plainfield football game.

Zachary E. Coons, 18, of 7 Parent Hill Road, Plainfield and Teaque A. Carignan, 19, of 41 Winthrop Drive, Moosup were each charged with second-degree breach of peace and released on a $500 non-surety bond. They are scheduled to appear in Danielson Superior Court Oct. 6.

Police said they were called to Plainfield High School at 9:18 p.m. for a report of a fight at the game involving fans and players. Upon arrival, police found several individuals were still yelling and arguing but they did not observe any fighting.

The altercation took place as players were exiting the field at the end of the game. After speaking with multiple witnesses, officers arrested Coons and Carignan.

Plainfield High School Principal Jim Worth was present at the time of the arrests and told Coons and Carignan they are banned from future school events.
