Boston Cops Are “Softies”
This morning around 2:05AM, officers from District D-4 (south End) responded to the corner of Huntington Ave. and Exeter St. to investigate a person.
While on scene, officers observed staff from the Saint escorting an unruly patron from the bar. Officers observed that the patron was uncooperative with the staff as he refused to leave the area and began yelling obscenities at the staff. In addition, officers noticed that the rowdy patron started yelling at and harassing at other patrons who were leaving the bar.
Officers approached the suspect when he started walking from the sidewalk into the streets causing traffic to come to a stop and bystanders to start to gather. Officers advised the suspect to get into one of the waiting cabs and go home but he refused. Officers made note that the suspect was intoxicated by virtue of his bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and unsteady gait. Officers advised the suspect numerous times to leave to no avail, as did an individual who was in the company of the suspect.
After several failed attempts to get the suspect to enter a cab, he finally complied but now rolled down the window to the cab and continued in his angry, drunken tirade again drawing a crowd. The suspect’s conduct was so outrageous that he caused the cab driver to be in fear. Having made note that the suspect behavior was not going to cease, officers placed the suspect, Patrick A. Johnson, 25, of Dorchester under arrest charging him Being a Disorderly Person. At the booking desk, the suspect continued his tumultuous behavior, exclaiming to officers, “I called you every name in the book and you didn’t do (expletive), D.C. Police would have beaten my ass, you are a bunch of softies!”
