Two charged after brawl in apartment building

September 17, 2013

Two people ended up in custody, including Thomas Patrick Biagetti, 49, who was charged with resisting arrest and assaulting Officer Linden Karsner.

“I thought we played well overall,” he sighed following the bittersweet tie, one that left the Clippers at 1-2-1 overall and in league action. “We’ve been lacking offense, and – sometimes – that’s just the way the game of soccer goes.
