Gillette Stadium Charged $4.50 for Tap Water After Bottled Water Ran Out

The Patriots apologized after fans were charged for tap water. 

Fans were charged $4.50 for tap water after bottled water ran out at Gillette Stadium on Sunday during the New England Patriots' win over the Houston Texans, The Boston Globe reports.

Temperatures hit 86 degrees in Foxborough and the Patriots prepared by doubling their water bottle inventory for the game. But the demand was too much, with the Globe reporting it was almost four times the normal inventory for an average game.

The Patriots apologized when the local CBS channel reached out.
