Disorderly Person:

Occurred on 11/10 at 11:50 AM – Elm St./Davis Ave.

Captain Thomas Keaveney was working a police detail when he witnessed an individual assault three gas company workers while they were digging on Elm Street. The man pushed and grabbed these crew members, at the same time yelling that he would not allow them to work in front of his home. When Keaveney stepped in to stop him from physically assaulting these men, he continued to berate them for 5 to 10 minutes. Keaveney tried repeatedly to reason with him while restraining him, but it was clear that he would not stop interfering or assaulting this crew.

While being escorted to the corner of Davis Avenue, the man was restrained because he was aggressive and clenching his fists, clearly indicating he meant to strike. He continued to yell, threatening to return to the crew if he could, and then began kicking Keaveney in the legs and tried to knee him in the groin.

The individual was placed under arrest for 2 counts of Assault and Battery on a Police Officer and Disorderly Conduct.

Officers Davis, Inchierca, Tam, and Captain Myles Murphy were conducting bicycle enforcement in the area of Coolidge Corner.

An ambulance was coming, with lights and siren, westbound on Beacon St. and officers held the traffic until it went by.

As traffic began to move, an officer stepped into the right-hand lane and motioned for the bicyclist to pull over. Instead, the cyclist went out into the left lane of traffic. The officer yelled "Pull Over!", and the cyclist yelled back, "No!”, shaking his head from side to side and continuing to cycle. A pursuit began. The cyclist was passing the stop-and-go rush hour traffic at a fast pace, weaving in-and-out without utilizing hand signals. Vehicles were avoiding the cyclist, as the actions by the bicyclist caused a public inconvenience and hazardous conditions. The sirens were activated and the bike continued to fail to stop.

The officer was finally able to cut in front of the cyclist just before Thorndike St. He finally complied and got off his bike to speak to the officers.
