OUI Suspect Brings in the New Year the “Wrong Way”Yesterday morning around 2:30AM, officers from District D-4 (South End) were on patrol on Lansdowne St., a one-way street, when they observed a motor vehicle traveling in the wrong direction. Officers stopped the offending motor vehicle to issue a citation. On approach of the operator, officers immediately detected a strong odor of alcohol coming from the driver and noted that his eyes were glassy and bloodshot. Based on these observations, officers decided to have the suspect perform a number of field sobriety tests to determine his ability to safely operate his motor vehicle. Officers had the operator exit the car and perform a number of tests. The suspect could not recite the alphabet, touch his nose, nor perform the nine-step walk and turn test due to the fact that he was so unsteady on his feet. After failing all of the above tests, the suspect, Paul M. Lamonica, 28, of Topsfield was arrested and charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol, and cited for a One Way, Wrong Way violation. Call to Police Results in One Less Gun on the Streets At approximately 5:30PM yesterday evening, officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to 45 Centre St. in Roxbury for a person with gun. En route, officers were advised that the person with the gun was with a group of teenagers, and a specific description of the suspect with the gun was given to officers. On arrival, officers went to the basement hallway and there encountered a group of nine teenagers ranging from 13-15 years of age. Officers directed all members of the group not to move while pat frisk were conducted to determine the possible presence of firearm. One member of the group when ordered to stand up from his sitting position, complied and in the process of standing up a gun fell from his person. A 15 year-old male juvenile from Roxbury was arrested and charged with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition and Trespassing. The other teenage members of the group were taken to the district station and released to their parents.
