Boston police say they arrested one person during postgame celebrations after the New England Patriots 13-3 Super Bowl victory over the Los Angeles Rams.
Police say 21-year-old Vincent Bredice, of Los Angeles, was charged after scaling a tree on Boston Common at 11:30 p.m. Sunday with an alcoholic beverage, kicking off several branches, refusing orders to climb down and making an obscene gesture at officers.
He was charged with malicious destruction of property, disturbing the peace and drinking in public. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
Police publicly thanked the crowds for behaving.
Previous sports celebrations in Boston have resulted in vandalism and even death.
At the University of Massachusetts Amherst, which has also had its share of troubles, police say no one was arrested during celebrations.
