BPD responded to Carter Playground around 8pm on Friday, just as a high school football game between Cathedral High and Archbishop Williams was ending. Evidently there were several fights breaking out around the field.

As the fights continued, BPD called for all officers in the neighborhood to respond plus transit police, state police and Northeastern police. Columbus Ave was blocked off and officers helped to escort the two teams safely off of the field.

See BPD report below:

At about 6:19 PM on Friday, October 7, 2022 Officers assigned to District D-4 arrested multiple individuals in the area of 709 Columbus Ave., Boston.

Officers were on directed patrol in the area of Carter Playground for a football game.  While on scene, officers’ attention was drawn to a large group of juveniles forming on a nearby tennis court.  As Officers approached, they observed a fight, with multiple juveniles watching.  As the juveniles began to disperse, they observed a male, later identified as the 16-year-old juvenile male, laying on the ground.  The juvenile refused to cooperate with offers, and eventually fled from officers on foot, and officers lost sight of him in the large crowd that had become increasingly unruly and hostile towards officers.  Officers on scene requested additional units to the scene, eventually requesting all available units from the city to respond in an attempt to help control the crowd.

Officers made multiple arrests as a result of this incident.  The individuals arrested are as follows:

  •  A 16-year-old juvenile male charged with Affray

  • A 17-year-old juvenile male charge with Disorderly Conduct.

  • A 17-year-old juvenile male charge with Disorderly Conduct

  •  A 15-year-old juvenile female charged with Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest

  • A 15-year-old juvenile female charged with Disorderly Conduct and Resisting Arrest

  • Chiquela Howard,37, of Weymouth, MA, charged with Disorderly Conduct, Assault and Battery, Assault and Battery on a Police Officer, and Resisting Arrest

  •   A 15-year-old juvenile male charged with Assault and Battery, Disorderly Conduct, and Resisting arrest
