Rowdy Red Sox fans punished with essay

Tuesday, October 23
BOSTON (AP) — Seven rowdy Red Sox fans have a homework assignment, and it has nothing to do with baseball.

A judge has ordered them to write a five-page essay explaining what they have learned from their experience of being arrested after the Red Sox won the American League Championship Series Sunday night.

The defendants must also provide proof to the court that their parents are aware of their arrests.

The seven were among 26 people — many of them college students — charged with disorderly conduct charges. A spokesman for the Suffolk District Attorney's office says many were arrested for ignoring police orders to clear the area around Fenway Park after the game.

Some in the crowd allegedly threw rocks and bottles at police.
