Bar Bans College Hockey Player Carson Briere Over Wheelchair Push
The college hockey player who pushed a woman’s wheelchair down the stairs at a Pennsylvania pub last weekend has been banned from the establishment … TMZ Sports has learned.
Nate Sanders — the security manager at Sullivan’s Pub and Eatery in Erie — tells us … Carson Briere, the son of Philadelphia Flyers interim general manager Daniel Briere, is no longer welcome at the bar after security camera footage showed him pushing Sydney Benes‘ wheelchair down a flight of stairs on Saturday night.
According to a GoFundMe page organized by Sanders … Sydney is a double amputee that requires a wheelchair to be mobile while she’s learning to use her prosthetics. Nate told us he assists Sydney with getting around whenever she visits Sullivan’s.
Sanders said that should Carson step foot inside Sullivan’s moving forward following the ban … he’s prepared to get law enforcement involved if necessary.
Carson — a junior center on Mercyhurst University’s ice hockey team — has apologized for his actions … calling them inexcusable. He’s since been suspended from the team as the school investigates the incident further.
Police have also launched their own probe into the matter.
Carson’s famous father, meanwhile, chided his son for the chair push … saying Wednesday his son will take “full responsibility for his behavior.”
