Real Life Somerville Police Stories:Yelena LEVICH (Bicycle Violation, Bicycle Violator Refuse to Identify Self)

On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, I, Officer Pavao, was assigned to Bravo 2. While conducting selective enforcement at McGrath at Alston St with Bravo 1, Officer Messaoudi, I had observed a bicyclist go through the red light located at McGrath and Washington. As the bicyclist approached I stepped out into the road and signaled with my hand for the bicyclist to pull over. I asked her for a license and she said ” I don’t have one”. I then asked for any form of identification she again said “I don’t have one”. I asked her a third time for any form of identification and she replied with “I don’t have one”. I asked for her name and she said “I’m not giving it to you. I didn’t do anything wrong.” I then explained to her that she went through a red light and she stated that she didn’t. I asked her for a Social Security number so that I could identify her through CJIS so I could write her a citation. She once again replied I’m not giving you anything. Officer Messaoudi then placed her under arrest for 85/11B Disregarding a Traffic Control Signal (red light) and 85/11E Bicyclist refusing to identify. I then requested Unit #200, operated by Officer Lambert, to transport the female back to Somerville Police station to be booked in the usual manner by the shift commander Lt. Digregorio.

A Uniform Citation T1827720 was issued.

At the time of the booking the female gave her name of Yelena Levich (xxxx).

Respectfully submitted,

Officer Brian Pavao #318
Somerville Police Department
