WINTHROP, MASS. (AP) - A Massachusetts man accused of aiming a laser pointer into the eyes of the opposing goalie at his daughter’s high school hockey game is facing criminal charges.

Authorities announced Tuesday that 42-year-old Joseph Cordes will be summoned to East Boston District Court to face a charge of disturbing the peace.

Police say Cordes pointed the light at the Medway/Ashland goalie during a Feb. 29 tournament game in Winthrop, north of Boston. He was ordered out of the arena by a school official.

Winthrop won 3-1, prompting a protest from the Medway/Ashland parents who asked that the game be replayed. The governing body of high school sports in Massachusetts denied the appeal.

Cordes hasn’t been arrested. He tells WBZ-TV (https://cbsloc.al/Ac1Jix) he feels “like a complete jerk” and humiliated his daughter.
