Two men were arrested after police say they spotted the pair drinking beer on Burnham’s Field just after noon Wednesday.
David Sheehan, 59, of Shepherd Street and Glenn Davis, 56, of Middle Street were sitting on the bleachers at Burnham’s Field with three other people when police arrived. Police observed Sheehan drinking from a can of beer and Davis drinking “beer-colored liquid” from a sports drink bottle.
Officers said the other three people were sent away because police had not seen them drinking. Police said drinking and drug use at Burnham’s Field has been an ongoing issue.
Walter Burbridge, a 27-year-old Flume Road man, was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace and acting disorderly Wednesday about 10:30 p.m., when police were called a second time to a home where Burbridge was allegedly causing a disturbance.
Burbridge had gotten out of rehab earlier Wednesday, and the initial call to police reported that he was acting combative after having a reaction to medication. Police said Burbridge was “intoxicated” and multiple people were restraining the man both times before officers arrived.
Police told Burbridge to leave the area after the first disturbance, but he returned and was allegedly “out of control” when officers arrived at the Magnolia Avenue home a second time to arrest him.
