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.
