BOSTON -- Five men arrested during celebrations of the Bruins' Stanley Cup championship have appeared in Boston Municipal Court.

Police say one man encouraged a crowd near TD Garden to turn on police and dared officers to arrest him. Authorities say that when at first they didn't, he shouted obscenities, took off his shirt and threw his belt at the officers. He was arrested on charges including inciting a riot and disorderly conduct. Bail was set at US$500.

Three men have been charged with malicious destruction of property. They're accused of smashing mirrors on parked cars. They were released Thursday on personal recognizance.

A fifth man was arraigned for assault and battery after allegedly shoving a police officer.

Two other arrests were reported. Police say most revellers behaved responsibly.
