Real Life Somerville Police Stories:Michael BUSOOK (Fugitive from Justice, AB Police, Resisting, Possess Class A)

The following is a summary of the details related to this incident.  


On August 11, 2016 at approximately 16:07 hours, while assigned as marked unit East-2, I was dispatched to McDonalds for a report of a man with an outstanding warrant for his arrest sitting in the restaurant. East-3 Officer Wyatt was also dispatched to assist. The description provided of the male was a white male, twenty-five years old, wearing dark nylon basketball shorts and white t-shirt, with a day old beard, on a cell phone, possibly with a notebook or paperwork on the table. Upon arriving on scene a male matching this description was observed and was asked for identification. The male stated he did not have an ID but then pulled out his wallet shortly after and provided a MA Driver’s License showing him to be Michael Busook; the subject of the previously mentioned outstanding arrest warrant (New Hampshire Docket # 2012-CR-0790) .     


The warrant for Busook was confirmed by dispatch and he was then patted down. Busook was asked to place his hands behind his back and as I was about to handcuff him, he threw up his arms in an attempt to push me away and attempted to run. As I attempted to grab hold of Busook, I lost my balance and fell as I was grabbing his legs which resulted in me only getting hold of his nylon basketball shorts. Busook continued to struggle towards the door as Officer Wyatt wrapped his arms around Busook and brought him to the ground in the corridor area of the McDonalds entrance. At this point we were able to bring Busook’s hands behind his back and place him into handcuffs. Transport unit-200 operated by Officer Teves was dispatched to our location and Detective Brioso arrived to assist.  


Once in custody, Busook was searched incident to arrest. During this search, I found in his wallet a small plastic bag containing a brown powdery substance which I believed to be heroin. Detective Costa tested this substance using the TruNarc Narcotics Analyzer (Scan #2429) which confirmed it to be heroin. This substance has been submitted as evidence. Busook is charged with violation of M.G.L. ch 276 §20A Fugitive from justice on court warrant, violation of M.G.L. ch 268 §32B Resisting arrest, and violation of M.G.L. ch 94C §34 Possession of a Class A substance.           


Respectfully submitted,


Officer Anderson #315
