Can we please just shoot drunk drivers? Or put them in forced-labor camps? Or come up with a way to surgically install Anabuse in them for the rest of their lives?

Associated Press
BOSTON -- New England Patriots fans turned rowdy after their team's Super Bowl victory, flipping cars and lighting small fires as thousands swarmed the streets. One person was killed when an allegedly drunken driver backed his sport utility vehicle into a group of revelers.


In Kenmore Square, near Boston University, college-aged fans thronged the streets around garbage fires Sunday night. A local television station reported that one of its vans was vandalized, and the crew had to be escorted from the area by police.


Across town near Northeastern University, fans flipped about a half dozen cars.


An SUV struck several people early Monday, killing James Grabowski, 21, of West Newbury, and injuring three others, one critically. The SUV was stuck in a crowd of revelers when the driver put the car in reverse, then shifted into forward, striking pedestrians and a police officer, authorities said.


Grabowski was the son of State Police Capt. Daniel Grabowski. The family had no comment Monday.


The driver, Stanley Filoma, 24, of Boston, was arrested a short distance away. He was arraigned Monday on charges including vehicular homicide while operating under the influence. Bail was set at $10,000.


Filoma was over the legal limit when he was given a breath test three hours after he was stopped, district attorney spokesman David Procopio said.


Filoma's lawyer, Steven Sack, didn't return a call.


In the city's busy Allston neighborhood, which is home to many students and has many bars and nightclubs, firefighters hosed down revelers to disperse the crowd. Temperatures were in the mid-20s.


Three people were arrested, police said. Crowds dispersed by about 1:30 a.m.


At the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, police in riot gear cleared a crowd of hundreds of fans after they set a fire and refused to disperse. There were no reports of trouble at the University of Rhode Island and the University of New Hampshire, where violence broke out after Red Sox playoff games last fall.


Boston plans a noontime parade Tuesday that will wind its way to a rally at City Hall Plaza, where two years ago about 1.2 million fans celebrated the Patriots' Super Bowl win -- its first -- over the St. Louis Rams.

I saw this at espn.com earlier but hadn't known they had arrested the guy for DUI.

And he didn't even stop at the scene?

What an asshole.

Nope, he didn't stop at all. There was an video of it shot by someone who lived on that street and it was shown on the Channel 7 news here in Boston. He just hit the guy like he wasn't even there.
