ERIE, Pa. (CBS) -- Carson Briere, the son of Philadelphia Flyers interim general manager Danny Briere, has been charged in connection with pushing a disabled woman's wheelchair down the steps of a bar in Erie.

Carson Briere, who plays hockey at Mercryhurst University in Erie, was charged with criminal mischief, disorderly conduct and related offenses.

A video, posted by @juliazukowski on Twitter, shows Carson Briere and two other friends at the top of the steps at Sullivan's.
