Jan 18, 2012, 1:38 PM EDT


The man who’s been accused in the assault of a Rangers fan following the 2012 Winter Classic in Philadelphia has had his bail raised from $100,000 to $400,000, reports

The higher bail for Dennis Veteri, 32, was requested by the Philadelphia district attorney.

It’s unknown whether Veteri was able to post the new amount. Perhaps he’ll have to give Chico a call.

Veteri’s next scheduled court appearance is Jan. 31 for his preliminary hearing.

    Was this the dude that came from the side and rocked the guy that had just gotten up from being pummeled on the ground by three guys and was standing there staggered?

    Raise it even further.

      No doubt. He only has to pay 10% and has already done so. Why dosnt a true Philly fan go beat this guy while he is out of jail?

    That mug shot must’ve been taken after someone told him fans of other teams have as much of a right to exist as he does. Total shock.

    ‘Whaaaaat? Really?”

      Pittsburgh isn’t that much different kiddo…. just saying…

      People need to grow up, plain and simple. I hope this guy get’s what he has coming to him. Whenever a fight is not 1 on 1 it is an act of multiple cowards. Fight with honor if you HAVE to, not because you are drunk and someone is wearing the colors of a different team. This POS better live in fear the rest of his life because I for one will kick his nuts up past his nose if I get the chance
