Police reported “dangerous” overcrowding, pot possession, a passed-out partygoer and an assault at the fete for Anime Boston 2012 fans…April 8, cops showed up at a party at the Sheraton, where they reported removing a “clearly disturbed” 20-year-old male who’d been “kicking and punching” EMTs. Officers also confiscated less than an ounce of pot from two people and tended to an unconscious woman.
