An East Sandwich man was arrested Wednesday morning during the Red Sox Victory Parade through Boston.
Boston Police confirm in a statement that 19 year old Patrick Connolly was observed by police throwing a can of beer at one of the duck boats, striking an unidentified adult male.
The victim was not injured as a result of the incident.
Multiple media outlets, including the Boston Globe, say the open can of beer thrown by Connolly struck Red Sox Manager Alex Cora.
Boston Police report that Connolly told arresting officers that he wasn’t trying to hit Cora, whom he likes.
Connolly appeared in Boston Municipal Court on charges of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, minor in possession of alcohol and disorderly conduct.
Several unopened cans of beer were tossed to players on the duck boats during the parade with one of them reportedly striking the trophy and bending some of the flags.
