Via TMZ:

“The NYPD now says there was actually no argument between the two parties prior to the punch … telling TMZ Sports in a statement, “The defendant approached the victim (unprovoked) striking him.”

Police arrived on the scene shortly after the incident occurred and arrested Rangers fan James Anastasio.

According to the report, James Anastasio was booked on charges of assault, disorderly conduct, and harassment.
