OVER THE LIMIT – UNDER ARREST IN BRIGHTONAt about 2:38am, on Saturday, May 16, 2009, officers from Area D-14 (Brighton) observed a motor vehicle operating erratically and unpredictably in the area of Commonwealth Ave. Specifically, officers observed the motor vehicle drive onto and over an island along Commonwealth Ave. When the vehicle drove over the island, several pedestrians were forced to move so as to avoid coming into contact with the vehicle. Officers promptly activated their emergency equipment (lights & sirens) and stopped the car. With the car stopped, officers observed that the vehicle had a flat front tire. While speaking to the operator, officers noted that the operator appeared to be intoxicated given her slurred speech and glassy eyes. When asked where she was coming from, the operator stated, “A bar.” When asked if she had been drinking, the operator stated that she had had a ‘few’. Officers then asked the operator to exit her car. With the operator outside the car, officers administered a field sobriety test. The operator was unable to pass the examination. When officers informed the operator that she had failed the exam, the operator stated, “It’s not your fault. I’m the one who was drinking.” Officers arrested Autumn Brawn, 21, of Boston and charged her with Operating Under the Influence (Alcohol). IPOD THIEF ARRESTED BREAKING INTO CARS IN THE AREA OF NEWBURY STREET At about 7:05am, on Friday, May 15, 2009, officers from Area D-4 (South End) responded to a radio call for a black male, wearing a red plaid shirt, breaking into a black Audi in the area of 299 Newbury Street. On arrival, officers found and observed the car with the front passenger side window smashed and the contents of vehicle strewn about the interior of car. Officers also noted the presence of an IPod charger – minus the IPod – plugged into the car’s center console. In short time, responding officers observed an individual matching the description of the suspect. While approaching the suspect, officers noted that the suspect was listening, conveniently enough, to an IPod. Officers asked the suspect where he got the IPod. To which, the suspect stated, “I got it at the store.” The suspect then stated that he was in possession of a second IPod as well. Officers also noted that the suspect was carrying a brown coat on which officers observed shards of glass in the pockets of the jacket. Officers then accompanied the suspect back the scene of the car break. While on scene, a witness to the crime positively identified the suspect as the man seen breaking into the car. Officers arrested Terry Graham, 46, of Boston and charged him with Breaking & Entering a Motor Vehicle, Receiving Stolen Goods and the Willful & Malicious Destruction of Property. The suspect was then transported to Area D-4 (South End) for booking. While officers were back at the station, a second victim entered the station to report a car break. According to the victim, similar to the other incident, her car window had also been smashed and her IPod stolen. Officers then showed the victim the second IPod recovered from the suspect. Upon seeing the IPod, the victim stated, “That’s mine.” As a result, Mr. Graham was charged with an additional count of Breaking and Entering a Motor Vehicle and Receiving Stolen Property.
