Man charged with having weapons in Gillette Stadium lot

WRENTHAM, Mass. (AP) — A Connecticut man police say had a meat cleaver, a stun gun and swords in his vehicle in an employee parking lot at Gillette Stadium has been held on $17,500 bail.

Not guilty pleas were entered on behalf of 48-year-old Matthew Bromson, of North Granby, Connecticut, on Monday in Wrentham District Court to charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, possession of an electric stun gun and assault with a dangerous weapon.

Prosecutors say he is also wanted in his home state.

Bromson, who is not a stadium employee, was arrested Friday just before the NHL’s Winter Classic between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens. Police say there was never a threat to the event. Police allege he threatened several bus drivers.

Bromson shook his head and laughed as the prosecutor read the charges.
