Red Sox fan arrested for throwing beer can at Alex Cora, daughter at parade

A Boston Red Sox fan has been arrested and charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon after throwing an opened beer can at Alex Cora and his daughter during Wednesday’s World Series parade, according to a CBS Boston report.

Patrick Connolly, 19, of Sandwich, Mass., also is facing minor in possession of alcohol and disorderly conduct charges in relation to the incident.

Police reportedly “observed” Connolly tossing the beer can at Cora and his daughter, who were riding in a duck boat. Footage of the incident was widely spread on social media.

Connolly expressed remorse about the incident, claiming it was not his intent to hit Cora or the Red Sox manager’s daughter.

“I love Cora, I didn’t mean to hit him,” Connolly told officers after his arrest, according to a police report.

Connolly appeared in Boston Municipal Court on Wednesday afternoon. The 19-year-old was among six fans arrested during the parade.
