Whackademia Quote: College Kid Charged With Knockout Game Assault

     A Massachusetts college sophomore is under arrest for a string of vicious, totally random, "knockout game"-style attacks against three fellow students. Dillon Destefano walked up to three people he didn't know and sucker-punched them in the face….Police say the incidents occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, February 2 at or near Endicott College, a small private school in a small New England town about 25 miles north of Boston. The victims were walking home.

     Destefano, 19, is a resident of New Jersey. As a freshman he was on the roster of the men's hockey team. Two of Destefano's alleged victims suffered major injuries….The sophomore has pleaded not guilty to the aggravated assault and battery charges against him….

     Destefano, who has been diagnosed with Crohn's disease, had a previous brush with fame about a decade ago when he met hockey great Wayne Gretzky for a portion of a televised Make-a-Wish Foundation Special on ESPN….Destefano was nine-years-old at the time….
