Cape man charged with hitting Alex Cora with a can of beer

UPDATE: Released on personal recognizance at his arraignment, Suffolk County DA's office reports.

Maybe he meant well, like other people at the rolling rally tossing beers up to Red Sox players, but whatever the intent, Boston Police report a Sandwich resident faces arraignment on charges that include assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for an incident during the parade on Boylston Street in Copley Square around 11:40 a.m.

Officers placed the suspect in custody after observing him throw an unopened can of beer at one of the Duck Boats, striking an adult male party on board. The victim was not injured as a result of the incident.

WCVB reports the man was Sox manager Alex Cora. Video.

In addition to the A&B charge, Patrick Connolly, 19, also faces arraignment on charges of being a minor in possession of alcohol and disorderly conduct.

Innocent, etc.

Otherwise, pretty much anything you hold or wear can be a dangerous weapon (assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, to wit, shod foot) . I once posted about somebody charged with that for throwing a TV remote at somebody.

A relative was on a jury trial where said dangerous weapon was ... a frozen pork chop.

In other news Cora announced that spring training will have extra emphasis to improve fielding.

There were at least 3 people that one shouldn't hit: Alex Cora, David Price, and Joe Kelly.

Cape Cod Boy will have to come back up to Boston for a different kind of fun now.

I guess someone never learned the difference. This sort of thing happens when schoolyard games have any and all hazards removed - people don't understand how to gently convey a beer!

sound advice, but consider these people have had at least 1000 beers before the "toss"
