Issues arise throughout Boston during World Series celebration

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com/AP) -- Boston Police announced that 10 people were arrested around Boston for unruly behavior related to celebrations of the Boston Red Sox winning the World Series.

In Roxbury District Court on Thursday, preliminary information was available on the 10 men awaiting arraignment. Most of the men, ages 18 to 37, were arrested on disorderly conduct charges, while some were also charged with assault and battery on a public employee, trespassing, and resisting arrest.

Though there was a heavy police presence throughout Boston, numerous tweets surfaced of celebrations turning unruly in different parts of the city, with Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis tweeting that anyone in the Landmark Center, the shopping area near Fenway, needed to "go home."

Other tweets detailed people trying to flip cars near the Copley Square area, and on Boylston Street, with some including pictures of fans banging on cars trying to drive through crowded areas, and others climbing traffic lights. FOX 25 cameras caught a flipped car on Boylston Street as it was being taken from the middle of the street and towed.

Celebrations got out of hand on some college campuses outside the Boston area as well. Officials at the University of Massachusetts' flagship campus in Amherst said 15 people - 14 of them students - were arrested in the aftermath of the Sox' victory.

The university said in a statement that police responded to a disturbance after thousands of students gathered in the southwest residential area of the campus after the game had ended.
No injuries were reported.

Fourteen people were charged with failing to disperse and one with being disorderly. Two of those arrested were also facing charges of assault and battery on a police officer.

At the University of New Hampshire in Durham, N.H., five students were arrested on disorderly conduct charges.

Five University of New Hampshire students have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges as police cleared a crowd blocking Main Street in the town. Police estimated a crowd of about 1,000 people grew to roughly 3,000 people in 20 minutes. After people started throwing bottles and cans at officers, police said they started using pepper spray and pepper balls.

At Keene State College in Keene, N.H., police also used pepper spray after students flipped over a vehicle and threw rocks, glass bottles and ice. No one was arrested.
