Real Life Somerville Police Stories


Rafael Rodriguez Arrest

On the Evening of Sunday, March 08, 2015 I, was assigned to marked unit E-3. At approximately 22:00 hrs, I was travelling east bound on Broadway, a public way in the City of Somerville. I Randomly queried Mass Reg 576-HR2 from the laptop located in the police vehicle. The results of the query showed that the vehicle in question, had an expired non-renewable Mass Registration. I activated my emergency lights and siren to stop the vehicle.

When I approached the driver a Mr. Rafael Rodriguez, I asked him for his license and registration. He replied, “Hello.” I once again asked him for the required documentation, he handed me a Dominican I.D. After researching, it was discovered that the operator did not have a valid license to operate a motor vehicle in Massachusetts.

Unit #200 was requested to transport the operator to the Somerville Police Station, so he could be booked in the usual manner by the shift commander Lt. A. Rymill.

Respectfully submitted,

Officer Robert M. Pasqualino #271
Somerville Police Department
