Celtics fan arrested for throwing bottle at Kyrie Irving after Irving stomped on Celtics logo

BOSTON (WLNE) – A 21-year-old Braintree man was arrested for throwing a bottle at former Boston Celtic and current Brooklyn Net, Kyrie Irving, after Sunday night’s Celtics game with the Nets.

Cole Buckley, 21, is charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. Witnesses told police that he grazed the head of Irving with a Dasani Water Bottle.

Irving suggested that Boston fans tend to make racist comments before making the trip to face the Celtics in Game 3 of Round 1 of the teams’ playoff series.

And after the game on  Sunday night Irving appeared to stomp on the face of the Celtics’ Leprechaun logo at mid-court.

Buckley then threw a water bottle at Irving as he left the floor and went into the tunnel towards the locker room.

He was quickly identified and arrested.

TD Garden says he’s subject to a ban for a life from the arena.
