Fan arrested for throwing water bottle at Kyrie


Written by Donald Tolbert | SFL Journalist

According to TD Garden, a Boston Celtics fan who threw a water bottle at Kyrie Irving as he was leaving the court following the Brooklyn Nets' 141-126 win on Sunday has been arrested. Boston police escorted the fan out of the arena and arrested him for "throwing an object," according to the statement.

The bottle narrowly missed Irving, who was walking toward the tunnel after recording 39 points to help Brooklyn take a 3-1 series lead over Boston.

"You can see that people just feel very entitled out here," Irving said about the incident. "They paid for their tickets -- great, I'm grateful that they're coming in to watch a great performance. But we're not at the theater. We're not throwing tomatoes and other random stuff at the people that are performing."

The witness told Boston police that the suspect threw a Dasani water bottle at Irving. Buckley, 21, of Braintree, New Hampshire, is scheduled to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court on Tuesday.

"We will support and provide assistance to Boston Police as this incident is under review," a TD Garden spokesperson said in a statement. "We have zero tolerance for violations of our guest code of conduct, and the guest is subject to a lifetime ban from TD Garden."
