An out-of-town hockey fan excited about his team’s win over the Beaver Valley Nitehawks on Friday irritated locals by setting off fireworks, according to RCMP.
Police say they received a complaint shortly after the game ended about a man causing a disturbance in the parking lot of the Beaver Valley Arena in Fruitvale.
When officers arrived, they found a 64-year-old Golden man celebrating the Rockets’ victory by, well, launching rockets.
“The man, in extremely good spirits, reduced his celebration back down to earthly levels and departed the area without incident,” police reported.
