Police: Zero tolerance for unruly, disorderly Super Bowl celebrations
BOSTON — Boston officials are warning students that there is a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to rowdy and disorderly behavior during and after Sunday’s Super Bowl.
Police Commissioner William Gross said officers will be on the lookout in Kenmore Square and throughout the city for excessive drinking and any disorderly conduct.
Several areas of the city will have vehicle and pedestrian traffic restricted Sunday.
Traffic restrictions will be in place in and around Brighton, Kenmore Square, Northeastern University, Faneuil Hall and North Station.
Restrictions will be in place starting at 6 p.m. Sunday. Kenmore Square will be shut down after the third quarter of play, and Boylston and Hemenway streets will be affected as well.
“The BPD will have extra patrols monitoring license premise locations as well as those neighborhoods where we typically see an increase in activity,” Gross said in a statement.
Gross added that there will be zero tolerance for disruptive and illegal behavior.
The New England Patriots are taking on the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl on Sunday in Atlanta.
