APPREHENDED FOR PUNCHING A POLICE OFFICER About 3:05pm, on Wednesday, February 14, 2007, officers from District D-4 responded to a radio call asking them to remove an individual from the Boston Public Library on Boylston Street. On arrival, officers spoke to library security officers who stated there was a man on the property refusing to leave. When officers approached the individual in question, the individual, slumped over in front of a computer, appeared to be sound asleep. As a result, officers attempted to wake the individual.
