PITTSBURGH (AP) – Police were celebrating having to make only one arrest as fans poured into the streets following the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stanley Cup championship Sunday night, as the city prepared for a victory parade.
The parade will begin Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. downtown. A similar celebration after the Penguins’ 2009 championship – scheduled for exactly seven years to the same day – drew nearly 400,000 fans.
Sunday night’s only arrest involved a fan who allegedly taunted a mounted officer’s horse with a skateboard. That man, 20-year-ol d Tristan Hardinger, faces charges of disorderly conduct and taunting a police animal. He doesn’t have an attorney listed in court documents and couldn’t immediately be located for comment Monday.
The Penguins won the franchise’s fourth Stanley Cup over the San Jose Sharks.
