Police said the incident was isolated and there was no threat to those in attendance of Winter Classic hockey game at Gillette Stadium.
A spokesperson for the New England Patriots said Bromson was not working or attending the Winter Classic and is not affiliated with the stadium. They were told that Bromson had been staying in a nearby hotel and walked down into the lot which is when employees reported a suspicious person walking around.
Bromson has previously been arrested in Connecticut after he held police at bay for several hours following an incident at his Granby home in September 2014.
