A drunken driving charge brought against a Marshfield woman was continued without a finding Monday in Gloucester District Court.
Judge Joseph Jennings continued the charge, brought against Patricia O'Connell, 47, of 1718 Main St. in Marshfield, for a year, and placed O'Connell on probation, subject to random screenings. He also assessed her $600 in court costs and suspended O'Connell's license for 45 days.
Officers arrested O'Connell in the Gloucester Crossing parking lot in November 2010, after responding to a report of erratic operation.
Officers found her vehicle parked in the middle of a roadway in the lot, and found her walking out of Cape Ann Liquors. Police reports state that officers thought O'Connell was intoxicated, and ran her through field sobriety tests.
She failed, and was arrested.
A Gloucester man pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of disturbing the peace.
Judge Jennings placed Anthony Harrison, 41, of 17 Cleveland Place on a year's probation. Jennings also continued an assault charge without a finding for a year, and dismissed a charge of resisting arrest the request of the state prosecutor.
According to police, officers found Harrison in front of the door to his condominium at 17 Cleveland St. on Jan. 7.
When they asked him if he had another way in, he became angry, police said. Officers then arrested him for disorderly conduct, but police reports said the conduct got worse when they got to the station.
At the booking desk Harrison tried to assault an officer, and police responded with pepper spray and took him to the floor.
A Rockport man pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of driving with a suspended license.
Jennings dealt Daniel Sherburne, 28, of 4 Rowe Ave. in Rockport, a nine-month jail sentence that was suspended until October 2013.
Police arrested Sherburne after they pulled his car over on Granite Street in Rockport. Officers found he was operating on a suspended license and arrested him. Rockport police have said the incident is the third time Sherburne has been caught driving under his current license suspension.
Charges of driving with a suspended license brought a Gloucester man were dismissed after payment of court costs.
Paul Frontiero, 50, of 1 Essex St., paid $200 in court costs while having the charge dismissed.
Essex police stopped Frontiero in February after they noticed his inspection sticker was not up to date. They found he was driving on a suspended licenses and pursued a criminal complaint.
A disorderly conduct charge brought a Gloucester man was dismissed on payment of court costs and community service.
Jarred Gallagher, 18, of Cleveland Street, paid $150 and was ordered to perform 15 hours of community service.
Gallagher was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct in February, outside of the Tedeschi's on Washington Street after a clerk called police to report an "unwelcome guest" in the store.
According to police, Gallagher allegedly refused to leave the store and told officers to "go ahead and arrest me."
