On Thursday, July 18, at about 12:05 a.m., plainclothes officers in an unmarked car responded to radio call for a fight at the Marriot Hotel at 110 Huntington Ave.
Upon arrival, the officers, who had their badges clearly displayed on their outermost garments, observed two men and a woman fighting in the middle of the street.
A security guard from the Prudential Center was with the female, who was crying and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol. She said that her father and boyfriend had been fighting before her boyfriend took off running down Huntington Avenue.
Police stopped the woman’s boyfriends outside of 111 Huntington Ave. and after speaking with him, determined they he too was under the influence of alcohol. The man, who was described as “agitated” and “argumentative,” ignored multiple attempts by police to interview him and attempted to walk away from the scene.
Police then attempted to put the man in handcuffs, but he resisted, twisting his body while yelling obscenities at officers. Officers then took the suspect to the ground and asked him for identification, but the suspect cursed at one of the officers before kicking him in the back of his right calf. After police were able to secure the suspect, they transported him to District 4 headquarters for booking on charges of assault and battery and assault and battery on a police officer by means of a dangerous weapon.
Meanwhile, police spoke to the woman’s gather at the Marriot and observed that his shirt has ripped, as if he had been involved in a physical altercation. He told officers that her daughter’s boyfriend “had too much to brink and became very angry” at him. At this time, the woman’s father said her boyfriend grabbed him and threw him to the ground before attempting to punch him. The woman then tried to intervene by jumping on her boyfriend before he fled the area.
Paramedics arrived at the scene to evaluate the man, who injured his right thumb when he fell to the ground, but he refused medical treatment.
