Man arrested after Bruins victory

Transit Police/Ryan Baessler
On June 7, 2013 at approximately 11:29pm Transit Police officers from Area 2 were at Sullivan Sq. MBTA station assisting exuberant Bruins fans as they made their way home. While there officers were approached by several patrons who informed them there was a man physically assaulting another man just outside the station. Officers immediately made their way to the disturbance and observed a male, later identified as Ryan Baessler, 29 of  Carnegie, PA. grab hold of another, unidentified, male's neck while screaming threats directed towards him. Officers intervened and separated Baessler from the victim. However Baessler became belligerent and combative with the officers and attempted to spit and kick at them. Fortunately officers avoided Baessler's assaultive actions and were able to place him into custody. Baessler was transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. Baessler is expected to be arraigned on 06/10/2013 for Disorderly Conduct in Charlestown District Court.

(The victim left the area while officers were struggling to bring Baessler under control, hence they were unable to gather his information.)

Congratulations to the Boston Bruins on their thrilling victory last night and for advancing to the Stanley Cup Finals. As the Bruins' pursuit of the Stanley Cup unfolds we would like to remind all; please behave courteously and responsibly while traveling on the MBTA.
