BOSTON — Thousands of fans celebrated the Patriots’ sixth Super Bowl win Sunday night on Boston Common and police say revelers were mostly well behaved
A 21-year-old man from Los Angeles was arrested by Boston Police after he was seen climbing trees on the Boston Common and allegedly refused to climb down, according to a news release from Boston Police. The alleged tree climber, Vincent Bredice, was arrested around 11:30 p.m and is also accused of kicking branches off the tree while drinking alcohol. He is charged with malicious destruction of property, disturbing the peace and drinking in public.
Massachusetts State Police reported no arrests or major incidents of Super Bowl revelers where they were stationed, according to a news release. In addition to Boylston Street and Kenmore Square, troopers were also posted at UMass Dartmouth, UMass Amherst and Westfield State University. The crowds gathered in all locations were “orderly,” the release said.
It was apparently a different scene in Rhode Island, where a massive crowd gathered at the University of Rhode Island in Kingston where officials reportedly responded to at least five dumpster fires. Video shows one of the dumpsters burning and people throwing things into the fire and then running away. WPRI reports that three people were arrested, at least one of them who was connected to one of the dumpster fires. It's not clear if those arrested were students.
The MBTA is asking fans to be on their best behavior for the parade on Tuesday, reminding riders in a Tweet that "Anyone consuming or transporting alcohol, being disruptive/rowdy and/or creating an unsafe environment on the #MBTA will be ejected."
