Narrative
At approximately 22:28 hours, Officer Soares and I, were patrolling Temple St., when we noticed a large group of people yelling and shouting in the middle of both travel lanes. These actions impeded motor vehicles from passing through in a normal fashion. I immediately pulled my marked cruiser over to the shoulder of the roadway, to figure out what had transpired. An unknown gentleman approached us, and stated that he was driving by, when he observed a group of men, later identified as, Cory Bloom, , , and surrounding a young lady, victim in an aggressive and hostile manner. The unknown gentleman stopped, and exited his vehicle to assist v. The unknown gentleman stated that , , , and focused their attention towards him, and they began to argue with one another. Note: The unknown gentleman had left the scene prior to retrieving his information.

I went over to speak with all the parties about the situation. Both parties confirmed that it was a motor vehicle accident. Cory Bloom stated that he was backing up down Temple St. in an attempt to park his vehicle. In doing so, Cory Bloom struck v vehicle. v stated that she stopped her vehicle, and honked her horn in an attempt to alert Cory Bloom that he was approaching too closely to her vehicle. Cory Bloom ignored v warning, and he continued to back up into her vehicle. I asked for v and Cory Bloom’s license and registration. v immediately produced her license and registration. Cory Bloom stated that his license was in the vehicle, and he asked to go retrieve it. Shortly thereafter, Cory Bloom approached us empty handed. I requested his license and registration a second time, and he stated that it was in the vehicle once again. I asked him why didn’t he retrieve his license and registration the first time, and he stated that he did not have his license and registration with him.

Note: While I was speaking with Cory Bloom, I observed that he was very unsteady on his feet, he was swaying left to right, and back, and forth. His eyes were red and glassy, and his speech was very slurred.

I instructed Cory Bloom to walk towards the sidewalk for his safety because everyone was standing in the middle of the street. As Cory Bloom approached the sidewalk, I observed Cory Bloom stumble forward onto the curb. As I was conversing with Cory Bloom, I could smell a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his breath.

Officer Soares asked Cory Bloom if he would perform a field sobriety test, to which he agreed to. The first field sobriety test that Officer Soares performed, was the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus (HGN). Officer Soares instructed Cory Bloom on how to perform the HGN. Officer Soares stated to me that there was a lack of smooth pursuit, and sustained HGN at maximum deviation. The second field sobriety test that Officer Soares instructed, and demonstrated was the walk and turn. Cory Bloom was very unsteady on his feet, he extended his arms outward to maintain balance numerous times. He paused during steps to regain balance. He did not maintain a straight line, he would zigzag left to right. He walked 13 steps in both directions instead of 9. During his steps, Cory Bloom did not maintain contact between his heels and his toes. He did not demonstrate a proper turn at the end of his steps. The third field sobriety test that Officer Soares instructed, and demonstrated was the one leg stand. Cory Bloom utilized his arms to maintain balance, he placed his foot on the ground numerous times, he did not raise his foot off the ground correctly. Instead he bent his knee at a 90 degree angle. He hopped numerous times, and he only counted to 15. Cory Bloom was placed under arrest, and he was transported to the Somerville Police Station in the prison transport vehicle, Unit 200, where he was booked and processed in the usual manner.

While speaking to the occupants of Cory Bloom’s vehicle, occupant stated that Cory Bloom was operating the vehicle. He was attempting to back up the vehicle into a parking lot when the collision occurred. Note: A motor vehicle accident report was filed, photographs were taken of the interior of the vehicle due to the half filled bottles of alcohol, which were located inside the vehicle within everyone’s reach. Two knives were confiscated from the drive’s side door storage area, where Cory Bloom had access to them. Both knives were tagged, logged, and secure.
