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).
