Former Red Sox pitcher Rich Hill arrested after confrontation at Patriots game

Former Red Sox pitcher Rich Hill was arrested along with his wife at the Patriots game Saturday following a confrontation with Gillette Stadium security and police, officials said Monday.

Hill’s wife was charged with disturbing the peace and trespassing after she came to the game with a bag she was told she could not bring into the stadium, according to the Norfolk District Attorney’s Office.

Hill was also charged with disturbing the police and interfering with a police officer.

At an arraignment Monday, the charges were changed to civil infractions and each was charged $500.

‘Despite Saturday’s events, my great respect for law enforcement remains unchanged. However, seeing my wife handcuffed for a problem that started because of her fanny pack was extremely difficult for me to witness,” Hill said. “This was all overblown and we are glad to have it behind us.”
