BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Transit Police say it is unclear whether or not a dispute that resulted in the arrest of a Pennsylvania man was connected to the Bruins' game four victory Friday night.
Police were stationed at the Sullivan Square MBTA Station just before 11:30 p.m. as Bruins fans made their way home following the team's 1-0 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Officers at the station were approached by people who said there was a man assaulting another man just outside the station.
The officers walked outside to investigate and say they found a man, identified as 29-year-old Ryan Baessler of Carnegie, Pa., holding another man's neck while screaming threats at him. Officers say when they broke up the argument, Baessler attempted to spit and kick at them.
Baessler was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. He is expected to be arraigned Monday in Charlestown District Court.
The MBTA Transit Police official Twitter account tweeted about Baessler's arrest Saturday, "PA man arrested after #Bruins victory at #MBTA station. Was he a #Penguins fan & upset over loss? We don't know."
