Three Brooklyn firefighters — one a calendar model — were arrested after a bar brawl just steps from Citi Field following the Mets hope opener, officials said.
Firefighters Michael Profeta, 34, John Martin, 33, and Anthony Cardazone, 43, were all arrested inside McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon in Flushing about 8:30 p.m. The watering hole is connected to the Mets ballpark.
Cardazone was Mr. November and was snapped up in his suspenders — and no shirt — with the Brooklyn Bridge in the background for the calendar, which was published by Battman publishing. The FDNY began publishing its own calendars in 2012, officials said.
The three were cheering the victorious Amazin’s 7-2 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies inside McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon on 126th St. near 37th Ave. in Flushing about 8:30 p.m. when they got into a “classic bar brawl,” according to police sources.
Responding officers rounded up and arrested the three without incident.
Profeta and Martin were charged with assault and disorderly conduct, cops said. Cardazone was hit with resisting arrest, assault and disorderly conduct charges. Their arraignments were pending.
The FDNY did not immediately return a call for comment.
Hundreds of firefighters — as well as Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro — attended the Mets home opener as the team honored cops and firefighters injured in the line of duty.
FDNY Captain Donald Hodgkinson — who suffered a severe leg injury in Brooklyn last May when an underground service box exploded underneath him — threw out the first pitch with NYPD Police Officer Patrick Espeut, who was shot in the face during an ambush in a Bronx housing project in February.
