Man accused of pulling alarm at Steelers’ hotel released on $100 bail

Police arrested a 25-year-old East Boston man for pulling a fire alarm early Sunday morning at the Hilton Boston Logan Airport, where the Pittsburgh Steelers were staying ahead of Sunday evening’s championship game in Foxborough, police said.

Dennis Harrison was charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, and setting off a false fire alarm after he allegedly pulled the alarm at the hotel around 3:40 a.m., State Police said in a statement.

After State Police and Massport fire officials determined the alarm was false, police apprehended Harrison at the hotel, where he was not a guest, police said.

The incident appeared to be a prank, said State Police spokesman David Procopio, and Harrison was released on $100 bail.
