Rockport man arrested in post Red Sox celebration

(Continued)

“Boston called. Gloucester answered,” Campanello tweeted after the Red Sox win.

Genovese and Mako were deployed with the North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, a regional response organization composed of officers across the state.

There were reports of some violence and the overturning of at least one car on Boston’s Boylston Street, a few blocks from Fenway. And at the University of Massachusetts’ flagship campus in Amherst, 15 people were arrested in another post-Series ruckus, 14 of them students.

UMass officials said in a prepared statement that police responded to a disturbance after thousands of students gathered in the southwest residential area of the campus after the game ended.

Fourteen of those arrested there were charged with failing to disperse, while one was charged with disorderly conduct. Two of the people arrested are also facing charges of assault and battery of a police officer, according to a statement released by University of Massachusetts officials. Police in Amherst also utilized pepper spray and pepper bombs in trying to scatter the crowd.

The university said it provided food to nearly 3,000 students watching the game and that the atmosphere was calm until Boston’s 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. There were no reports of any injuries, but the Daily Hampshire Gazette of nearby Northampton reported that students were climbing trees and tossing toilet paper and water bottles.

At Keene (N.H.) State College, police used pepper spray on about 1,000 students who gathered to celebrate and flipped over a car, according to The Keene Sentinel.

Material from the Associated Press was used in this report.
