A Burlington teen has been charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after he reportedly hit a Winchester teen with a bat following Monday night's Division I boys' hockey final.
Burlington High faced off against Winchester High School Monday night for the North Division I boys' hockey final. Burlington edged out the victory; however, a student-athlete at Burlington High School, 17-year-old Harrison Smoske, was arrested later that night for his role in a related fight.
According to police, some teenagers from both sides ended up verbal jabs outside the Lowell area following the game. The fight then moved to Winchester's town common where some Winchester teens reportedly tossed snowballs and sticks at the car of one of the Burlington students.
Investigators say that's when Smoske, the driver of that car, took out a bat and hit an unarmed Winchester teen on the leg and on the head.
