Craig Stanley Craig Stanley, 54, was arrested by police in New York on March 3, 2013 and charged with forcible touching. He is accused of slapping a woman's buttocks outside the Nassau Coliseum as an odd and inappropriate congratulatory gesture celebrating the woman's birthday. Stanley denies slapping the woman's butt; rather, he insists that he slapped the woman on the back. Stanley is a rabid Islander fan who is known for heckling the team's owner Charles Wang back in 2001 during a meeting with fans. Stanley reportedly angered Wang at the meeting by asking multiple times why he hired a particular manager. Eventually, Wang shot back at Stanley to "sit down and shut up." The following Official Record of Craig Stanley is being redistributed by Mugshots.com and is protected by constitutional, publishing, and other legal rights. This Official Record was collected on 3/08/2013.

Model Citizen I guess...
marianne krause March 11, 2013 at 07:00 PM
see brent with your knowledge i assumed you were guilty of being an inmate see how that works ?
Brent M. March 11, 2013 at 09:03 PM
@Marianne .. true that..( although in our numerous battles over cops, Im pro-cops, cops are here to protect us, you think I would be an inmate who ADAMANTLY defends cops, is weird) ..still think if someone you dont know touches you for no reason what so ever, especially if its a 21 yr old girl.. is wrong.. and I still think if found guilty.. JAIL JAIL!!! and then Civil Lawsuits.. and I am proud to say SKELL DESERVES JAIL!!!!
Brent M. March 11, 2013 at 09:04 PM
..if found guilty... haha

The intelligence factor on these posts are in fact just shy of a group of q tips. The smart money says let the courts decide and stay out of it. If he is indeed guilty he's guilty if he is not he's not. Either way he will not do jail time. If jail time was mandatory for touching or a slap on the ass I would be doing life. Withstanding that. A preceding civil suit should only be determined after a prelimary case has been satisfied frivolous or not. Bottom line. Lets go Islanders!!!! Not.....
Brent M. March 13, 2013 at 02:45 PM
yeah.. and a crap load of legal fees and bills.. so either way.. the guy loses

It is what it is. We are all guilty of bad choices once in a while. Mistakes always costs you a few greenbacks. I personally don't call them mistakes any longer I use the word experience.
Brent M. March 13, 2013 at 06:39 PM
yeah..lol.. an EXPENSIVE Experience! haha
Lycanthrope March 13, 2013 at 09:05 PM
Possibly but I will not judge, laugh, or find humor in others unfortunate situations or unwell being.
Brent M. March 14, 2013 at 12:27 AM
True.. thats your opinion.. mine from putting Skells in jail.. say they have no body but themselves to blame and yeah , now you have to pay.. Not in every case. but its unfortunate for the victim if the perp is convicted.. not unfortunate for the perp
