A Pennsylvania man was arrested at Charlestown's Sullivan Square MBTA station Friday night after the Bruin's hockey win against The Pittsburgh Penguins. Police said the suspect allegedly tried to choke another man.

Ryan Baessler, 29, of Carnegie, was charged with disorderly conduct after allegedly grabbing the unidentified man's neck while screaming threats.

When Transit Police intervened, Baessler allegedly "became belligerent and combative with the officersand attempted to spit and kick at them."

The victim left the area while officers were struggling to bring Baessler under control, Transit Police said.
