A Celtics fan was recently arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for throwing a water bottle at Kyrie Irving. November 6, 2018 an annoyed Kyrie Irving threw a basketball into the stands after losing to the Denver Nuggets. If 21-year-old Cole Buckley was arrested after allegedly throwing a water bottle, Kyrie Irving should be too.
Here’s the video of Irving throwing the ball into the stands after a game with the Denver Nuggets in 2018.
