Boston Celtics rookie forward Jaylen Brown has made some noise during his young NBA career, but the crowds he draws apparently make too much noise.
A delay in a scheduled appearance by Brown and rapper Desiigner on Monday at Cambridgeside Galleria Mall in Cambridge, Mass., reportedly caused the large crowd in attendance to grow hostile, prompting response from 30 police officers that included six arrests and an evacuation of the entire mall, according to WCVB.
Brown planned to join Desiigner for a meet and greet at Champs Sports when the numbers of those in attendance swelled to over 1,000, according to police.
The six people arrested were juveniles, and police said the charges included disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and trespassing.
Members of the crowd began throwing items when police attempted to clear the scene, causing officers to use pepper spray. Emergency personnel also were called to treat injuries, according to the report.
