A Massachusetts man who aimed a laser pointer into the eyes of the opposing goalie during his daughter's recent hockey game is facing the criminal charge for disturbing the peace. And now he's speaking out about the incident.
Joseph Cordes, the father in question, said of the event, "I wish I could undo it...I feel like a complete jerk. It was very stupid, completely immature for a 42-year-old man to be doing that...My daughter, the humiliation I put her through is sickening to tell you the truth."
Even though Cordes was ordered out before the playoff game ended, the opposing team was unable to recover.
“It’s kind of like when you look at the sun and then you look away you see that spot and you can’t see for a couple of seconds. You shake your head and try to get it out of the system and just keep focusing, but it’s difficult,” the goalie said.
The governing body of high school sports in Massachusetts denied the appeal to replay the game, prompting disappointment from both teams.
