Boston police have arrested a man accused of hitting someone with a can of beer thrown during the parade celebrating the World Series-winning Red Sox.
Police said 19-year-old Patrick Connolly, of Sandwich, Massachusetts, was charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Police said the can struck but didn't injure an unidentified man aboard one of the amphibious duck boats carrying players and their families in Wednesday's parade.
Photos and video on social media showed one beer can hitting manager Alex Cora and two others almost hitting MVP candidate Mookie Betts. Neither was seriously injured, and it didn't take any varnish off the shining celebration.
Connolly told the arresting officers, according to the Boston Globe: "I love Cora. I didn't mean to hit him.''
Police commissioner William Gross said there were five other parade-related arrests, including a 17-year-old charged with illegal firearm and drug possession.
That's how you do a championship parade.
