Real Life Somerville Police Stories:LICENSE SUSPENDED, OP MV WITH, SUBSQ.OFF



On Thursday May 14, 2015, at approximately 18:31, while on marked patrol in unit 876, I( Officer Patrick Canty), along with marked unit 877( Officer Collazo), was dispatched to the intersection of Willow Avenue at Kidder Avenue for a report of a male driver that struck two parked cars with his SUV.
Upon arrival, I noticed a blue Jeep parked on a crosswalk and a pedestrian pointing at the car. I exited my vehicle and approached the Jeep. The driver of the Jeep, identified as Patrick Scully, immediately handed me a piece of paper. I asked him what it was and he responded, “I took out a mirror, I wanted to leave my information”. I asked him if he had his license and registration. Mr. Scully said he did not have his license, he left it at home.

Mr. Scully provided me with his name and date of birth and I ran his information through my mobile computer. Mr. Scully came back with a SUS/RXP/NRE license. He also had two Default Warrants out for his arrest, one in Cambridge District Court, and one in Somerville District Court. I would like to note, both warrants were for the same charge of Driving After Suspension. I went back to his vehicle and asked him if he was aware that his license was suspended. Mr. Scully told me he thought he took care of it. I then notified him that he had two separate warrants both for the same offense. He was placed under arrest for the default warrants, and the new charge of driving on a suspended license. He was issued MA Criminal Citation R5798239.

He was transported to the station by the transport wagon 200( Officer Soares) and booked by Lt. McCain per the usual manner.
Mr. Scully’s car was illegally parked on a crosswalk and was towed by Pats Tow Co. I then did an accident information exchange with the parked cars that were struck.

Respectfully submitted,

Officer Patrick Canty 306
