BOSTON (CBS) – A man from Los Angeles was the only person arrested Sunday night as fans celebrated the Patriots’ Super Bowl victory in Boston.
Vincent Bredice, 21, was arrested around 11:30 p.m. in the area of Tremont and Avery Streets. Police say Bredice climbed a tree on Boston Common.
Officers warned Bredice several times to get off the tree. He allegedly gave police the middle finger and continued to climb.
Boston Police say Bredice kicked multiple branches off the tree while drinking an alcoholic beverage. He was removed from the tree and arrested.
Bredice is charged with malicious destruction of property, disturbing the peace, and drinking in public. He is expected to be arraigned on Monday.
No other arrests were made at the celebrations, although a Pennsylvania man was summoned for disorderly conduct.
Massachusetts State Police did not make any Super Bowl celebration arrests either.
