Southie parade revelers in court

Eleven people who thought they would be in South Boston Sunday for a good time during the St. Patrick’s Day parade had to return to the neighborhood for a not-so-good time.

People who were arrested for various crimes during the parade Sunday were arraigned in South Boston District Court Monday.

Six of the 11 people in court agreed to pay $200 in court costs and perform up to 24 hours of community service to have their municipal ordinance crimes, such as public drinking or disorderly conduct, dismissed.

However, five other people went forth with their cases. Here is a sampling of how some of those people ended up being arrested Sunday:
A 41-year-old Stoneham man was seen drinking from a beer bottle while along the parade route, according to prosecutors and police. When police told Kevin McBride to empty out the bottle, he chugged it instead, police said, and then refused to give them his identification for a citation. Officers then arrested McBride, who began chanting “Attica! Attica!” as he was led away, authorities said. He was later released on his own recognizance.
Officers along the parade route responded to a person who was bleeding from the head and said he had been in a fight during which another man smashed a bottle on him. Officers were able to locate the alleged assaulter, Brendan Pembroke, 23, of Boston. Pembroke allegedly told officers he didn’t hit the man with a bottle, but instead his fist, according to prosecutors. Pembroke was ordered held on $1,000 bail.
Instead of returning to the sidewalk from the street where the parade was traveling, Joseph Morris, 20, of Billerica, allegedly chest- bumped an officer and told them to “shut up,” police said.He was released on his own recognizance.
