  • 6 Arrested in Vandalism of Former NFL Player’s Upstate New York Home

    Former NFL player's, Brian Holloway, home was broken into over Labor Day up to 400 teenagers who threw a party and vandalized his home. Upon seeing the photos of the teenagers online(twitter), Holloway creates a website with the photos of the teenagers, helpmesave300.com to get the teenagers to come forward to avoid involving police so that the situation may be solved amicably; only 4 teenagers came forward.

    The some parents of the other teenagers as a result of having their teenagers photos put online then threaten to sue Brian Holloway. Since then, in frustration, Holloway has signed documents authorizing police to arrest the teenagers. As of yesterday(Thursday), 6 have been arrested. Police say hundreds more will be arrested.

    My questions are:

    Who in their right mind would want to sue someone offering you a way out of your teenager's criminal predicament?

    Are these parents this naive to what their teenagers are pretty much guilty of? Do they even understand the magnitude of what a felony record could do to their futures?

    6 Arrested in Vandalism of Former NFL Player’s Upstate New York Home, With More Busts to Come, Cops Say

    ALBANY — Six people were arrested on charges they were among hundreds of young partygoers who trashed a former NFL player’s vacation home, and police said more arrests were expected.

    The arrests on Thursday came after former New England Patriots and Los Angeles Raiders offensive lineman Brian Holloway said he signed papers authorizing the Rensselaer County sheriff to bring charges in the Labor Day weekend party, which was attended by up to 400 teenagers.

    Holloway said that among those charged was a young man he had taken into his family for a time as a homeless teen, who’s accused of organizing and promoting the party. He said investigators have told him the number of people charged could end up in the hundreds as they work through the sheer volume of participants.

    “Everyone that broke the law, I’m pressing charges against,” Holloway said. “The parents had a chance and students had a chance to come forward, and only four did.”

    Holloway, who played offensive tackle for the Patriots and Raiders in the 1980s, gained national attention by reposting party pictures the teens had put on social media websites. He said he posted them on the website helpmesave300.com in an effort to get the teens to come forward, take responsibility for their actions and change their behavior.

    Instead, he said, some parents were angry about his website and there was even a threatened lawsuit.

    “I tried to be as accommodating as I could, but they took their stand by not showing up,” Holloway said.

    The partiers caused at least $20,000 in damage to his rural vacation home near the Massachusetts border in Stephentown, including broken windows and holes in the wall, he said.

    Police said a ringleader of the party was 19-year-old Seth Hawk, the young man Holloway said he had taken into his family a few years ago. Hawk, of Grafton, faces felony charges of burglary and criminal mischief and misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a child and unlawfully dealing with a child. He’s accused of advertising the party and providing alcohol.

    Three of the other arrested people face felony charges including burglary and larceny, and two are charged with misdemeanors, including trespassing. They range in age from 17 to 21.

    A phone number wasn’t available for Hawk, and authorities said they didn’t know the names of the arrested people’s lawyers.

    Holloway said Hawk was a classmate of his son and had a troubled youth but found stability living as part of his family when he was about 15. He said hearing about Hawk’s involvement “was a shocker.”

    “We’re still pulling for him,” he said. “This may be the thing to get him on track.”

    The parents are idiots, and are the reason those kids act like they do.

    That being said, I hope they make arrests on every last one of them.

      "I broke into and vandalized a NFL player's house when I was a teenager. Can I still be a cop?"
      It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.

        Twenty grand divided by 400 kids is fifty bucks a kid. The parents and the kids are collectively stupid. Bet if they had checked with a lawyer before they blew it off, the lawyer would have said "Take the gift, you will never get a better deal in your lifetime!"
        When you are dead, you don't know you're dead. It is difficult only for the others around you.

        It is the same when you are stupid.
