On the MBTA: Pennsylvania man arrested for post Bruins fight
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 officers and attempted to spit and kick at them.”
The victim left the area while officers were struggling to bring Baessler under control, Transit Police said.
On their blog, Transit Police wrote a reminder to game-goers: “Congratulations to the Boston Bruins on their thrilling victory (Friday) night and for advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals. As the Bruins’ pursuit of the Stanley Cup unfolds we would like to remind all; please behave courteously and responsibly while traveling on the MBTA. Rowdy and unruly conduct will not be tolerated by the MBTA Transit Police.”
