Some Celtics fans are not happy a fan may be facing serious charges for throwing a water bottle at Kyrie Irving after game 4 of the Nets-Celtics series.

On Monday, 21-year-old Cole Buckley was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon for throwing the bottle at Irving on Sunday night.

Celtics fans are now circulating a petition to get Irving arrested because they feel the charges against Buckley are a bit over the top. In the petition, the fans call for Irving to be charged with assault with a dangerous weapon for throwing a ball in the stands back in 2018.

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.
