Teenage boys arrested for brawling at Selena Gomez concert at City Hall Plaza
Despite widespread reports Sunday that a hundred-person brawl broke out at a free Selena Gomez concert at Boston’s City Hall Plaza, Boston Police said today that only three teenage boys were taken into custody in connection with the incident.
The teens, who were not identified, were charged with disorderly conduct after the fight broke out around 4 p.m..
“Sometimes when the weather heats up, you get kids acting up and we located a few kids misbehaving at the concert… pushing some other kids,” said Captain Tom Lee.
“They were all teenagers and a couple of them started fighting. We were able to bring in some additional officers and quell it quickly and place those individuals under arrest. Aside from that, the crowd was largely well behaved.”
The free concert was sponsored by AMP 103.3 FM, a local radio station.
