Handful of arrests, fans mostly well-behaved after win
BOSTON (WHDH) -- Fans, in a frenzy over the win, were well-behaved for the most part. Things got a little bit wild on Boylston. Thursday morning, people were still just leaving Fenway Park.
On Boylston, people were still walking around basking in the win, hours after Game 6 had ended.
There are a couple of reasons people flocked to Boylston Street. One is that the Boston Marathon finish line is there and it a symbol for the city. More so than that, police barricades kept these people away from Fenway. There were a handful of arrests. Police said they arrested nine people, but considering the crowds, that was a small number.
Officers wore their regular uniforms instead of riot gear. There was at least one report of an out-of-control crowd flipping over a vehicle. They will be seeking out those responsible.
The city took a lot of planning keeping the city safe. Anyone running towards Fenway to celebrate was greeted with barricades. Apparently, there were some people who ran towards Boylston Street but 7News was also told there were some people who managed to run into Fenway Park but they quickly closed a door that had been left open to stop those crowds from getting out of control.
