    One Person Killed in Patriots' Revelry
    Associated Press

    BOSTON - Thousands of New England Patriots fans swarmed into the streets after the team's white-knuckle Super Bowl win, and some turned rowdy, flipping over cars and lighting small fires. One person was killed when an SUV backed into a group of revelers.

    In Kenmore Square near Fenway Park, college-aged fans thronged the streets around garbage fires. A local television station reported that one of its vans was vandalized, and the crew had be escorted from the area by police.

    Across town near Northeastern University, fans flipped about a half dozen cars. Several people were injured, one fatally and another critically, when the SUV backed into a crowd of revelers, then sped off, interim Boston Police Commissioner James Hussey said Monday.

    The driver was arrested a short distance away and was scheduled to be arraigned on charges including vehicular homicide, drunken driving and leaving the scene of an accident, Hussey said.

    "It's time we take a hard look at how we have a good time in this city in regards to celebrating victories in the Super Bowl," Hussey said. ya think?

    In the city's busy Allston neighborhood, which is home to many students and has many bars and nightclubs, firefighters hosed down revelers in hopes of dispersing the crowd.
    ...
    At the University of Rhode Island and the University of New Hampshire, where disruptions had followed Red Sox playoff games last fall, there were no reports of trouble. But at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, police in riot gear cleared out a crowd of hundreds of fans in the Southwest residential area when they set a fire and refused to disperse.

    This is so sad....There is no reason for a behavior like that over a winning team.

    Boston fans take it to the extreme sometimes. I thought we were in Europe or South America during the World Cup!!!!

    These stupid fans shouldn't get any friggin' parade!!!!!

    They don't get on like that here when our teams have won in the past. NYC is usually just a big party in the hours and days after a team wins.

    They're not real Patriots fans. Probably just the college kids being fools.

    People in Gillette stadium don't act that way...
