Boston plans heavy police presence to avoid post-Super Bowl chaos

BOSTON (Reuters) – Boston officials on Friday said they planned a heavy police presence and travel restrictions in some areas when the New England Patriots play in Sunday’s Super Bowl, hoping to avert the violence seen following championships a decade ago.

“We’re not going to allow celebrations to become an excuse for dangerous and illegal behavior in the city of Boston,” Mayor Marty Walsh said at a news conference. “We’re not going to tolerate public drinking, we’re not going to tolerate destruction of property.”
