Malden District Court
Resisting Arrest Chapter 268 Section 32B
Failure to Stop for Police Chapter 90 Section 25
Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle, Chapter 90, Section 14
Hardworking single father of two young children was arrested for Resisting Arrest, Failure to Stop for Police and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle. According to police, client was wanted for assault and battery and to serve a restraining order. Police allege that he was intentionally avoiding police. When in fact he was on the phone with his lawyer (different lawyer) and simply taking his kids to soccer practice. As he left for soccer practice the police flipped on the sirens and pulled him over. They all drew their guns on the children and client. Eventually, they pushed client to the ground and fractured his elbow. All while his kids watched from the vehicle. Upon review, there was no actual warrant for his arrest. After various stages of litigation, an agreement was crafted where the Commonwealth would freeze the case in the position it was, and, if nothing else occurs (such as another arrest) , in 5 months time, the case will simply be dismissed with NO admission of wrongdoing. CHARGES ALL DISMISSED.
RESULT: All CHARGES DISMISSED, with NO admission of Wrongdoing
