5 Harvard, 2 Yale students arrested

While the Harvard football team was defeating longtime rival Yale, Boston police officers were taking on disorderly fans, arresting several students for public drinking and other offenses.

Officers assigned to patrol near Harvard Stadium during Saturday's game arrested two Yale University students, who allegedly were underage and in possession of alcohol.

Kate Eastman Crandall, 19, of Chapel Hill, N.C., was arrested after first refusing to surrender identification and then emptying her bottle of wine on an officer's shoes, police said. Aaron Lambert, 20, of Swansea, Ill., was arrested after giving officers what they said was a false license.

Later, police arrested five Harvard students at a house party in Brighton. Officers arrived to the scene about 10:15 p.m. Saturday to find John D. Dinell, 24, of New York City urinating on the side of the house while drinking a beer. Dinell was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace, indecent exposure, and consuming an alcoholic beverage in public.

Officers entered the party and found about 50 people drinking and listening to music. Police said Mark Lees, 25, of Allston identified himself as a resident and refused six requests by police to end the party before he was charged with disturbing the peace.

Three other residents of 10 Sawyer St. -- Kaitlin O'Brien, 23, Caitlin Costello, 24, and Meghen O'Brien, 24 -- also were arrested in the residence after they refused four warnings from officers to leave, police said.

The seven arrested Saturday are scheduled to be arraigned today at Brighton District Court on various charges, including disorderly conduct.
