Shame on you Mayor Joseph Curtatone for stalling this case for one year that happened in October of 2019 and you’re getting to it now, disgraceful!
During a domestic dispute the police officer, who also is the Somerville Police Union President told the wife of a domestic dispute call to get in her car and leave. The wife’s car was being blocked in by her husbands car. The police officer ran the husband’s license over the radio and noticed that it was in suspended status, but then sneakily told the husband to move his car out onto the street so the wife can move her car out and leave. As soon as the husband moved his car onto the street as instructed, the officer handcuffed the husband and said you’re under arrest for driving with a suspended license. Then the cowardly officer pepper-sprayed the handcuffed husband and threw him into the patty wagon.Mayor Joe Curtatone allegedly tried to hide it from the public because of an upcoming election and here we are today one year later! And Joe wants to run for Massachusetts Attorrney General! Time for change in Somerville!
