Boston Police say Bredice kicked multiple branches off the tree while drinking an alcoholic beverage. He was removed from the tree and arrested.

Bredice is charged with malicious destruction of property, disturbing the peace, and drinking in public. He is expected to be arraigned on Monday.

No other arrests were made at the celebrations, although a Pennsylvania man was summoned for disorderly conduct.

Massachusetts State Police did not make any Super Bowl celebration arrests either.
