Police: Battling out of towners cause trouble at South Boston after parade
In addition to the Lowell guy charged with kicking a woman in the throat at Downtown Crossing, Transit Police report arresting two young men for whom the lure of the big city proved too enticing yesterday:
At approximately 10:22 pm Transit Police officers from Area 1 were at South Station MBTA Commuter Rail assisting and monitoring crowds who had attended the Saint Patrick's Day Parade when they were alerted to two males, later identified as Mathew Heney, 22, of East Wareham and John Stackable, 21, of Worcester, engaged in a fist fight with one another. Upon arrival of officers they observed a large crowd gathered around the two combatants just outside the men's restroom. Officers intervened and restored peace. Both subjects were placed under arrest for Affray and Disorderly Conduct and transported to TPD HQ for the booking process. They are expected to be arraigned sometime today in Boston Municipal Court.
