POLICE ARREST ONE FOR BAD BEHAVIOR IN CLEVELAND CIRCLE

At 5:50pm, on Saturday, November 21, 2009, officers performing a paid detail in the area of Cleveland Circle observed an individual leaning forward against a wall in front of 1931 Beacon Street (Mary Ann's Bar). Concerned for the individual's well being, officers approached the person to check on his condition. When officers asked the individual if he was okay, the suspect, who appeared to be intoxicated, spit in the direction of the officers. The suspect then began verbally berating and disrespecting the officers. As officers attempted to calm the suspect, the suspect struck one of the officers in the face. At this point, the suspect was taken into custody. According to employees of Mary Ann’s, the suspect had been told to leave the premise due to poor behavior.

Officers arrested Jonathan Higley, 24, of Brookline and charged him with Assault & Battery on a Police Officer and Resisting Arrest.

POLICE ARREST ONE FAILING TO STOP FOR A POLICE OFFICER

At about 8:38am, on Monday, November 23, 2009, officers from Area E-13 (Jamaica Plain) were on patrol in the area of Washington and New Washington Streets when they observed a motor vehicle travelling with a license plate that appeared to be obstructed. When officers got close enough to the car to read and run the plate through the Registry of Motor Vehicles, officers discovered that the motor vehicle was unregistered and uninsured. As a result, officers activated their emergency equipment (lights & sirens) in an effort to stop the car. Initially, the operator refused to stop, but after travelling a short distance, the suspect’s motor vehicle eventually came to a stop. Upon approaching the car, officers immediately detected an odor consistent with that of marijuana. A search of the car enabled officers to locate what appeared to be recently smoked blunt of marijuana in the ashtray.

Officers arrested Adrian Douglas, 32, of Boston and charged him with Operating without a License, Operating an Uninsured/Unregistered Motor Vehicle, Failure to Stop for a Police Officer.
