A Framingham teenager was pulled over by police for not using his signal to make a turn. When the police approached him to ask for his license and registration he made a quick movement to the center console where the officer saw a small baggie with a white powdery substance in it he believed to be cocaine. The teenager struggled with the officer and eventually was able to swallow the baggie. He was charged with assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, failing to provide license and registration and not using a turn signal.
Dedham, Massachusetts resident William Spada shot his wife Patricia Spada then his daughter Deidre Spada before turning the gun on himself in a domestic violence incident which left him and his wife dead and his daughter in the hospital in critical condition. The daughter’s boyfriend was an eyewitness who narrowly escaped the shooting by running out of the house.
Massachusetts has a zero tolerance policy towards acts of domestic violence. If police respond to a home and a party alleges that a threat or an assault occurred they will make an arrest. This is done to avoid the police getting blamed for not diffusing what later can be an explosive situation as the one which occurred yesterday at the Spada home.
